Documentation is a critical component in guest care. Having access to clear information at every step of the guest experience, improves the quality of the treatment the therapist can provide and the guest’s experience. Zenoti's salon client management software makes it easy for spas, skin clinics and other medical spas to digitally document a guest’s treatment progress using SOAP notes. SOAP is an acronym for Subjective, Objective, Assessment and Plan, a format that ensures service providers systematically capture guest notes during the course of a treatment. A SOAP form for a massage treatment might look like the following:
Using Forms To Capture SOAP Notes
With Zenoti's medical spa software, you can capture notes along with every treatment. In some cases, you might want to setup a single form, which allows for a series of SOAP notes to be captured. For example, if your spa offers only massages, then you can use a single form with multiple entries available in the same form. If you offer a variety of treatments, you might create a separate form for each treatment. For example, if you are a skin clinic that offers laser hair removal, chemical peels and botox, you would create an intake form that captures the guest’s medical history and a different form for each treatment.
Lookup Past Visit History Treatment Data
Your service providers have quick access to past treatment data through a tablet or smartphone. You can look up the guest’s medical history, notes made by therapists from previous visits to personalize the experience. Track progress against goals for treatments such as weight-loss.

Mobile Support for SOAP Notes
Therapists can enter and access notes directly into a tablet, in a smartphone or computer.
You can use generic images, or capture and store photos of the guest directly from your tablet or smart phone - either way, Zenoti's spa client software allows you to annotate images and store notes.
Take a picture, mark it up and add comments and save with guest profile. Use this feature to store before and after pictures.
Save Versions: Save versions of notes to track changes. This is useful if you need to track progress through a treatment course. Versioning captures who made the change as well as why a change was made.
