WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA – We are pleased to announce that we released a new update to Mavenlive physical therapy exercise software on Jan. 9.
Dubbed the “SOAP format,” SOAP stands for subjective, objective, assessment and plan. The update was designed to fit each physical therapist’s natural work flow more naturally as they evaluate patients.
It also will contribute to a reduction in the amount of typing required when entering patient information and prescribing rehabilitation exercises, says Chris Metcalfe, vice president of technical development for Prognition Corp., the company that manufactures Mavenlive.
“A tenet of Mavenlive is user-friendliness,” says Dr. Jay Winburn, Prognition’s president. “Every improvement and update we make is done with the goal of further streamlining processes and making tasks easier at the point of care level.”
This most recent update to our rehab documentation software involves changes to our point-and-click structured documentation form.
“Our clients asked us to put the point-and-click assessment parameter tree in a slightly different format than the one that we used to provide ‘out of the box,” Metcalfe says. “The update was developed with the help of many top therapists throughout the U.S. and Canada who currently use Mavenlive.”
No changes were made to the core Mavenlive architecture, he adds.
“We found that our users simply used our flexible parameter tree to customize so it would better meet their needs,” Metcalfe says. “This made it possible for top level physical therapists to draft a form for all other PTs to benefit from.”
The fact that physiotherapists made the change themselves drives home what we’ve said since Mavenlive software hit the market- it is developed by physiotherapists, for physiotherapists. You continue to drive our improvements, updates and upgrades.
We like to think of it as putting the “custom” in customer.
We’re pretty certain this new format will be an exciting new addition for our existing clients, as well as Mavenlive newcomers.
