SOAPware EMR Software


 

SOAPware, by Health Management Consultants, LLC, is available both as a standalone electronic medical records (EMR) system and as an integrated suite, which includes a practice management solution (the “Clinical Edition”).

Described by the vendor as a “chart-centric EMR system,” all patient information is managed from inside the chart for quick access. SOAPware helps users create documentation for a variety of examination and procedures, and notes can be made using the system’s integrated medical dictation software. Symptom- and diagnosis-based templates are available, which can be downloaded and customized or used as-is. And SOAPware can help users create referral letters and patient instructions.

Electronic prescriptions can be written and printed from the system. Reporting and coding assistance capabilities are also supported. SOAPware’s online user community provides support and allows users to share success stories, templates and more. Additional support as well as training and implementation assistance is also available through the vendor.

So I have only used SopwWare since at least 2010. It has changed and become more complex, I suspect secondary to all the changing regulations. I have been determined to learn the the new requirements and software changes. Despite all that, I do think that my quality of care, documentation, payments and interactions with patients has resulted in significant care improvement. The likeliness to a chart made finding data intuitive. Customer support is excellent. I would recommend this product. I would like their HISP to be more widely accepted, that's my only beef

Ease of operation after you overcame the obstacles of learning the system.

Likes Least

The system "freezes up" quite often. The many updates that we have had caused loss of information that was convenient for billing.

Recommendations

Insist on customer service being available when needed. When we first began the billing the associate we were assigned had an unacceptable attitude many times when asked simple questions. We would rather use trial and error to solve our own problems.

I do not like the error messages that are given by Soapware on a daily basis. It is very frustrating when this happens in the middle of treating patients.

Recommendations

Please try to resolve any issues there may be that cause the error messages. If the error messages were not a problem the software would be wonderful.

I would say it is very user friendly to use and customer service is great really. Technology has really came along way and I think that soapware maybe needs to look at upgrading for their program to keep up with technology.

Likes Least

Every time is time for an update you can bet there will be problems to follow. Also when you are in demographics and trying to put a patient in the program it will freeze up on you and you have to log out and log back in to finish with the patient that you are on meantime patient is still on the phone.

Recommendations

It is very user friendly and easy to work through with seeing patients.

Very user friendly and very intuitive to use. It is highly customizable. It appears like a paper chart. It has good technical support. They do listen to input from users and make the changes when they can most times. It is integrated system with billing/practice management and EMR/patient's documentation. Additionally, it is a good value ( one of the least expensive software software)

Likes Least

Since the upgraded a few years ago, the system has gotten slower to use and often freezes up. The system also does not work consistently with Dragon dictation system. There was an issue with the mouse jumping around which continues today although there have been modest improvements over the years.

Recommendations

Like in any local based server Systems, one would needs to know some basics of computing and network - or get one to help you. Test the software ( the company allow this on their servers by using remote desktop - which is good). Also view comments of users on the website. They have a lot of dedicated users who love software but also it will show areas of concerns about the software.

Like all EMR software companies development over the last several years has been dominated by government mandates for meaningful use.

SOAPware can be easily customized and fits many different work flow patterns. It offers both in EMR and billing module. I highly recommend SOAPware.

I have used Soapware since 1999. It was a great, inexpensive product that was flexible and easy to use. However, Docs, Inc. is not moving fast enough to keep up with the changing medical landscape. The government mandates have ruined this software package because they concentrated on that instead of making it easy to use. I went to the cloud-based system and it is slow, frequently freezes and loses data. I have the entire software shut down on me at least 3 times a day on average--most of my staff and the other doctors in the practice have even more trouble. There is no working dictation available and it is not designed for an iPad. Although the customer service is excellent, they cannot solve their problems. The practice management software is awful--you cannot run necessary reports--e.g. find office visits that have not been billed and copays do not show up anywhere until the visit is posted, making the end of day balancing very difficult--not everyone gets their charges in the same day. At one time there were several months when the statements going out to patients were wrong. I spent hours sending out refunds to patients that were given incorrect amounts to pay--and this is expensive (checks, envelopes, postage, time)--I tried to get the company to discount for a month given the problems and they offered me training. I needed software that worked, not training. Billing companies do not want to work with it because it is so slow and lacking the features making it easy to use. Again one example--each line of billing has to be clicked and diagnosis added individually (if you use a billing company to post charges). Now Soapware is concentrating on Direct Primary Care when it is their software that needs work. We were also unable to use outside programs for reporting--Prime Registry through the ABFP as an example--because the reporting in Soapware could not give them what they needed. Getting simple reports--like a breakdown of population by race was time-consuming and cumbersome. I contacted support and I had to run lists of each individual race, put that on an xls file and add the numbers to get this simple report (needed to apply for CPC+).
I could say a lot more but we are actively looking for a new vendor. The good news is that they are helping us with trying to figure out data transfer. I wish their product was as good as the support people who work there.

Soapware was originally very simple and efficient. Over the past several years, it has morphed into a complex and difficult EHR. I am not interested in Meaningful Use and other government requirements. I want to take care of my patients. Soapware has become an impediment.

Pediatrics is clearly not valued by SOAPware
Despite having used the product for approximately 10 years, any significant problem pediatricians have noted regarding immunizations has been disregarded on a regular basis and addressed only on a rudimentary level. I would not recommend the program to another pediatrician starting anew.

I have been a SOAPware user since 2003. I've been extremely happy with the software as well as with support from the company. SOAPware offers an integrated EMR/billing solution. It is extremely customizable and this can be done easily by the end user. Data input can be done through dictation, typing, pick lists, or templates. The company listens to its users. SOAPware has worked hard at helping users to adapt to the current regulatory environment including meeting meaningfully use requirements, helping with setting up chronic care management systems, and already has most diagnoses coded for ICD 10. The billing solution works well and allows me to do billing in-house. In summary, I would highly recommend SOAPware to anyone looking at an EMR.

I used Soapware for a year or so, and while they are wonderful people to deal with and put on a great lab session, I thought that overall the product was behind in technology. Maybe they have caught up...
