COVID-19 UPDATE

Optimize Documentation

The role of the scribe has evolved. Today’s scribe is a productivity partner, supporting everything from clinical documentation to other critical ancillary tasks that empower care teams to work at the top of their license. While scribes are primarily focused on reducing the clerical burden of EHRs, scribes can help improve the overall productivity and satisfaction of entire care team by supporting key tasks, from pre-visit planning to post-visit referral support and patient outreach.

What Every Provider is Thinking About

With scribes, providers are able to spend less time at a computer and more time at the bedside.

In a ScribeAmerica study, 85% of providers said scribes may extend their career. With scribes, they were able to spend more time with their patients, doing work they love.

By freeing providers to be at the bedside instead of a computer, patients enjoy more meaningful interactions. Providers are able to focus on patients, listening to the full patient story undistracted, while scribes document directly within the EHR.

Along with documentation, scribes gather important patient information ahead of clinical encounters for more productive visits. Providers are able to spend their time focused on direct patient care, often seeing more patients and leaving on time.

As scribes take on documentation and other ancillary tasks, care teams are able to spend more time focused on patient care and other top-of-license work.
