SALTing in SOAP Notes or How to Copy Previous Note

How does SALTing work?

zHealthEHR supports copying of the previous visit SOAP note findings to the new visit. This is called SALTing, aka Same As Last Time. 


Currently, the way SALTing works depends upon the Provider who is going to see the patient (appointment). The findings from the last visit from the same provider will be copied. If there is no visit from the same provider, only then it will copy the last visit which can be from any other provider. 


How to Copy Previous Note?

1. Enter the first or last name of the patient in the Search box at the top of the navigation bar on zHealthEHR dashboard. Click Enter.

2. Click on the desired patient name to edit information. The Patient’s Profile will open.

3. On the Patient Profile, you will be in the Summary section.

When a patient visits your practice by booking an online appointment or you have booked the patient through our Appointment Scheduler, a SOAP note is automatically created for the present date. So just below the Summary section, there will be a new SOAP note already created for the patient's visit for today's date.

Click on the '
Edit ' button to open the SOAP note.

4. You will be redirected to the SOAP Note tab > Intake section in the Patient Profile.

If you want to copy the previous Intake, click '
Copy Previous Intake '.

5. If you want to copy the previous exam notes, click ' Copy Previous ROS '.

6. If you want to copy the previous plan, click ' Copy Previous Plan '.

7. If you want to copy the previous daily notes, click ' Copy Previous Note '.
