Over the years, patient, physician and scribe feedback have shaped the process by which ScribeAmerica trains prospective medical scribes. By offering a competitive salary and unique medical experience, a job at ScribeAmerica is very appealing to local pre-medical college students and recent graduates. The scribe training program consists of three distinct steps: Step 1 is a demaning 2-week classroom training and orientation course designed to get the medical scribe "up to speed" for his or her first day of initial collaboration with the hospitalist. Step 2 is a supervisory period during which a highly experienced scribe provides training shifts and offers immediate review and feedback of the new medical scribes work. Step 3 is continuous, and consists of regular re-assessments that provide for indefinite and constant review of the scribe's effectiveness and allows the scribe to always keep up-to-date with a dynamic workplace environment. In all, each scribe receives a minimum of 120 hours of training and may receive much more depending on the scenario.
Depending on the initial size of the program, implementations are typically complete in 1-4 months. Once training is complete, every scribe will have a 90-day probation period when your group as well as ScribeAmerica can evaluate these individuals to ensure success.
Monthly or bi-monthly meetings will follow to keep the workforce up to date with changes in the department. You may have as much or as little participation as desired. Positive or negative comments and suggestions can be addressed directly to a ScribeAmerica officer. This is done to ensure your complete satisfaction. We have found that this type of reinforcement avoids any expectation that the hospitalist is somehow responsible for managing their medical scribes. You've hired us to do the leg-work; you can enjoy all the benefits of a professionally managed medical scribe program without any of the headache of managing your own scribe staff.
