What is a Scribe?
Conventionally, a doctor’s job has been focusing solely on direct patient contact and care. However, with the advent of Electronic Health Records (EHR), an overload of documentation and clerical responsibilities were created that slowed doctors down and pulled them away from actual patient care. In order to relieve documentation overload, doctors across the USA are now opting for Medical Scribe services.
A Medical Scribe is essentially a personal assistant to the doctor who performs documentation in the EHR, gathers information for patient visits, and partners with the doctor to deliver efficient patient care.
