Maintaining proper mental health progress records is important for practices to provide patients with the care they need. EHR integrated mental health transcription services offer many benefits such as better collaboration among providers, improved medication management and crisis management, health information privacy and security, and much more.
The two common mental health documentation methods are SOAP (Subjective, Operative, Assessment and Plan) and DAP (Data, Assessment, and Plan).

DAP note merges the Subjective and Objective elements under the Data section.
