We've got one exciting feature coming soon to Scribenote that we think is a game-changer in the world of veterinary documentation - here's a sneak peek of how it works:



  1. You record a quick appointment summary.
  2. Scribenote automatically transcribes the audio.
  3. Scribenote automatically sorts each sentence into a SOAP category.
  4. You get back a complete SOAP note.

Easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy! This all happens in the span of a few minutes, and the SOAP note is processed with no human in the loop.

We'll be rolling this out as a FREE Beta feature this week, and we're so excited for you to try it!

Hey everyone!

This is the first installment in a series of posts where we'll announce new Scribenote features each month. As a new startup, we’re always hard at work making Scribenote better. Many of the changes below are the direct result of conversations we’ve had with our customers.

Without further ado, here's the list for September 2022!


Website and app:​

  • New feature - 📝 Note titles (previously note-to-self): We’ve expanded the “note-to-self” field previously used for quicknotes and turned it into the more general “Note title”, which is now available on all types of Scribenote SOAP notes. Note titles make it easy to identify which note corresponds to an appointment. For example, you could quickly glance through patient notes and get more context on that patient from titles like "Checkup", "Vaccines", and "Dermatitis". Note titles are an optional field in SOAP forms, but can be added to new and previously saved notes. They can be as short and sweet or long and descriptive as you wish! By the way, note titles are not shared with recipients of export emails.
  • Improvement - 🏷 Note labels: You can now see the status of a particular note at-a-glance to see if it’s a new recording, draft, completed note, etc. These labels show in the inbox, during note edits, and in patient notebooks or the quicknotes page. They are not shared with recipients of export emails.
  • Improvement - 💾 Drafts: Drafts and new recordings now also show in patient notebooks and on the quicknotes page. No more looking for lost drafts in your inbox (they'll still be there though)!

Website only:​

  • New feature - 📥 Basic inbox: This is a new page where you can quickly see and manage your drafts and newly completed notes ready for export.
  • New feature - 📧 Embedded Auto export emails: Before, automatically exported emails set up through Scribenote could only receive an access link. Now, you can choose to embed the contents of a finished SOAP into an email that automatically sends when you complete a note.
  • New feature - 📔 Export a patient notebook to one PDF: Previously, a patient notebook could be exported into a ZIP collection of all the records for a particular patient. Now, you can export an entire patient notebook by clicking the "Export Notebook" button at the top right corner of the patient's notebook. This rolls up all completed SOAPs for a patient into a single PDF. This PDF can optionally include key patient information if you choose - just check your account settings.
  • New feature - 💾 Autosaving: This has been highly requested, and we're just sorry we couldn't get to it sooner! But alas, autosaving for SOAP notes is finally here! It works much like you'd expect, similar to other apps like Google Docs. All you need to do is type your note as usual. Your note will autosave as a draft quietly in the background. No matter what - bad internet, a computer crash, alien invasion, etc - you won't ever have to worry about losing your work while writing a draft.

  • New feature - 🚚 Move and Copy Notes: This feature will surely make your note management a breeze! Now, you can simply multi-select quicknotes or patient notes using the ⚡️Quick Actions selectors to move or copy them to another patient! Super handy for repeat or multi-patient appointments!

App only:​

  • Improvement - 🔄 Audio synchronization workflow: Audio recordings that don't save due to network connectivity issues are now easier to keep track of and sync.
  • New feature - ✍️ Edit completed notes: Previously, only new notes and drafts could be edited on the Scribenote mobile app. Patient notebooks and quicknotes now have a link to edit previously completed notes.

These updates are now available on our web and mobile apps (v1.0.9 available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store). In addition to all of this, we’ve made many bug fixes, and improvements over the past few weeks. We’re always working to improve, so if you see more opportunities for us to grow, please feel free to share.

Design for work-life balance ⚖️​

We have heard the troubling stats. Some of our team members have felt it themselves as practicing veterinarians. Vets are some of the most overworked professionals out there. We don't like this, and we want to help you with just a small part of that load. The boring part. The part you hate spending time on. The part that keeps you at work late or rushing to your next appointment. The clinical documentation. Our only goal is to take as much of that work off your plate as we can. We do this to make your work a little easier, and hopefully your life a little bit better.

Minutes matter ⏳​

Every minute we shave off your clinical documentation is a step in the right direction. We'll spend dozens of hours of engineering effort just to save you a minute.

Let doctors doctor 🩺​

You are a doctor of veterinary medicine. A healer of the sick. A protector of the healthy. A voice for the voiceless. A diagnostic super sleuth. A dentist. A surgeon. That's all pretty cool. 😎

You shouldn't have to be a data entry clerk on top of all that. We know you didn't work this hard to become a doctor with dreams of spending hours every day clicking buttons on a computer and drowning in paperwork.

‍Scribenote exists to help doctors spend more time doctoring.

Obsessed with the boring stuff 🤓​

Clinical documentation is one of the most boring aspects of practicing veterinary medicine. Scribenote has built its business on making the boring, less boring.

We can't make the act of typing notes any more fun, but we can certainly make it easier. We can even make it go away completely.

The boring stuff is our bread and butter, and by chipping away at it for you, we make your job slightly cooler than it already is. 😎

Jack of all trades = master of none 🔨​

Scribenote aims to keep our products as simple as possible. Right now, our focus is building tools to help vets make SOAP notes. We know this isn't the complete spectrum of computer tasks a clinic has to manage, but it's an important one.

By focusing intensely on SOAP notes, we can create smooth documentation workflows that a lot of EMRs out there couldn't dream of.
