Healthcare providers are the backbone of humanity.
It’s through their hard work, diligence, and courageousness that we’re able to recover from injuries and illnesses alike. However, even before the novel coronavirus struck, those working in the healthcare sector were run off their feet – especially considering there are only 2.6 doctors per 1,000 patients in the United States.
Healthcare providers, then, need to strike the fine balance of providing each patient with adequate care but within an appropriate timeframe.
To help make this near-impossible task a reality, many healthcare providers turn to what’s known as a SOAP note.
