S = Subjective
O = Objective + Osteopathic
A = Assessment
P = Plan

V = Vasculature
I = Infectious/Inflammation
N = Neoplasm
D = Degenerative
I = Idiopathic/Iatrogenic
C = Congenital
A= Autoimmune
T = Trauma/Toxicity

E = Endocrine/Metabolic
S = Structural 

With this model, you can add an "S" to make it VINDICATES
