2023 was a year of innovations and new features at GOrendezvous, so here's a summary!
At GOrendezvous, protecting personal information is a priority. With this in mind, we continue to update our practices and comply with the requirements of Law 25.
GOrendezvous complies with all new requirements on the right to privacy, by adding this new measure on www.gorendezvous.com as from September 22, 2023.
Since our launch in 2012, we offer an intuitive and efficient practice management software for massage therapists, psychologists, chiropractors, physiotherapists, acupuncturists, nutritionists, osteopaths, speech therapists, reflexologists, etc.
Today, we are proud to present this new feature that will make our users’ lives easier: booking appointments for two clients.
On the eve of its 11th anniversary, GOrendezvous is used by more and more professionals in various domains.
Several templates were already available on the platform such as SOAP notes, HSOAPIER concussion assessments, referral notes to another provider, reassessments, etc.
It has become a major challenge to continue to offer templates that meet the wide range of our users’ domains.
We are therefore pleased to present the new collective library, powered BY users, FOR users!

Have you ever used speech to text to write your texts?
Voice dictation is a tool that allows you to speak and transform words to a text version on a computer or cellphone, for example. For professionals who take notes when meeting with clients, this can be useful and save valuable time.
It was in 1952, in the Bell labs, that voice recognition began. The researchers then created the Audrey system, which was able to recognize a string of dictated digits with pauses between them.
Then, in the 2000s, the arrival of Google Voice Search allowed an exponential development on the subject, allowing up to 80% precision in speech recognition.
Today, with Siri, Alexa and Google Home, voice recognition has become normal, and the accuracy is phenomenal thanks to artificial intelligence. In addition, speech to text is now available on cellphones, web browsers, software, as well as computer and television operating systems.
Using voice recognition in the course of your work is quite achievable and can you save precious minutes. For GOrendezvous electronic charting users, it's possible to add an extension on your web browser or use the integrated option of your tablet to dictate your notes, which will be automatically added of your clients’ files.
The SOAP, SOAPIE, or SOAPIER notes are well known in the health field, they are used by physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, massage therapists, occupational therapists, and many others. They allow professionals to enter all relevant patient information in a standardized and easy-to-read manner. This way, all health professionals will be kept informed of the patient’s condition, the various appointments, and the progress.
The SOAP method was created by Dr. Lawrence Weed in the 1960s. It was a system that allowed notes to be associated with problems identified by a doctor at that time, so it was only part of the documentation process. Soon after, other healthcare professionals began to use SOAP evolutionary notes in their respective fields.
