POMR Charting

  1. 0
    Can someone tell me about POMR charting? I've never heard of it, and it's a prerequisite for applying to some hospitals. Is there a brochure someone can send me on this?

    You may have heard of POMR being called SOAP.

    A problem-oriented medical record (POMR) system is frequently used in acute, long-term, and home health care. A POMR record consists of baseline data, a problem list, a plan of care for each problem, and progress notes. The POMR charting system is also known by the acronym SOAP.
