Integrated Flowsheets in SOAP 2.0
WebPT’s Integrated Flowsheets in SOAP 2.0 allows you to document a patient’s treatment and activities within the SOAP note.
- Activities: Exercises to be completed via hands-on in-person therapy.
- Interventions: Interaction of the PT (or others involved in care) with the patient designed to improve movement, reduce pain, restore function and prevent future loss of mobility.
- Modalities: Energy treatment tools used to produce a therapeutic response such as Ultrasounds, Icing, Heating, etc.
Flowsheet documentation carries forward from one note to the next, recording performed exercises and measurement values.

Therapist Aide Flowsheet Documentation
Clerical users such as therapist aides or techs can document flowsheets on behalf of the therapist, including adding precautions, exercises, type of therapeutic activity, and exercise details.
- Clerical users can click on any case that is "In Progress" or finalized to begin flowsheet documentation.
- Once a case is opened, clerical users are restricted to viewing only the flowsheet subsection of the case.
- Clerical users can use all Flowsheets documentation functions listed in this Article.
- When the flowsheet is complete, the clerical user will use the Save and Exit option. The therapist will have to finalize and close the note.
If you cannot find the exact Activity you are looking for, you can create custom Activities from within the Content Drawer.
- To do so, type out the Activity name you want to add.
- After typing, you'll be given a checkbox with the Activity name entered into the search field.
- Click the checkbox, to add the custom Activity to your documentation.
Case Note Overwrite Protection
The new integrated Flowsheets prevents multiple users from opening the same in-progress note at the same time to prevent one user from overwriting the notes of another.
For example; when a case note is activley being edited by a therapist, if the therapist assistant attempts to open the case, they'll see a message that alerts them to the note being actively documented and be blocked from entering. The therapist assistant will only have the option to Leave the case and retry once the first therapist has completed documentation.

There are two ways to see the history of an activity in Flowsheets:
- In the flowsheet portion of a note, click the Pencil icon to the right of the activity details.
- A panel will open on the right side of your screen where the activity history will appear.
Alternatively, hover your mouse over the activity to see the last 5 days it was performed.
