OCHT Cleans Up Paperwork Mess with SOAP Vault

OCHT invites any clinic concerned about bulky records to give SOAP Vault a try.

In less than 5 years, Ontario College of Health & Technology saw their client records drawer grow from a filing cabinet to 2 huge credenzas. There had to be a better way to keep records.

OCHT’s student Massage Therapy Clinic exploded in popularity, which unfortunately left paperwork shrapnel to clean up. So they devised their own electronic records system to save space and increase accessibility.

“Although annually we would shred any files of patients that had not returned, we seemed to be overwhelmed with folders,” said Mary Ellen Logan from OCHT.

“Access to the patient files was another challenge because we have between 10 and 18 student therapists needing the patient information at the same time for every appointment.”

Their solution was the SOAP Vault, a secure Web-Based charting program that allows any therapist to access any client’s information in seconds. After successfully testing the system out, they quickly transitioned to a lean and green system, with records housed on tablet notebooks instead of paper-heavy cabinets.

“The students love the clarity of the program and the supervisors are thrilled that everything documented is legible and professional. It makes the review of the student files faster and more efficient,” added Logan.

OCHT invites any clinical setting that’s concerned about bulky records to give the SOAP Vault system a try.
