Congratulations to the Nanotechnology Engineering program’s Scribenote for their success in the Winter 2021 Concept $5k Pitch Competition.
Scribenote, comprised of Capstone Design team members Hashem Al Momani, Mohamed El-Naggar, Ryan Gallagher and Alina Pavel, won one of four $5,000 prizes for their innovation, which automates the creation of SOAP notes in patient charts, eliminating hours of costly, taxing work for people in the medical field. The Subjective, Objective, Assessment and Plan (SOAP) note is a widely used – and time-consuming – method of structured documentation.
Doctors, nurses and veterinarians can use Scribenote’s high-quality microphone to record their appointment notes and a seamless Bluetooth connection to upload them to a safe online database that complies with Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act regulations. For now, human scribes transcribe and organize the recordings into useful SOAP notes; Scribenote plans to incorporate machine learning scribes into future versions.
