That's true, no doubt.

No, the implication would be that there very likely are
encounters in which it is more practical to write a single,
large SOAP note.

Which can already be done.

Because, logically, that doesn't make sense.

I have been thinking about this quite often and (I think)
have also written about it once before on this list - maybe
coming from a different angle, namely a tool for
facilitating sorting Subjective and Objective into
differential diagnosis considerations.

Which can also already be done.
