Epic EHR, Going Live with and without Medical Scribes

Much of the talk in the EHR industry centers on the on the giant Epic EHR and their impressive portfolio. I personally spent four years documenting on Epic and can say it has some impressive components to it, however, in my opinion it was not built for the fast paced ED physician. When approaching new clients, we commonly warn C level executives about the potential productivity losses they will soon face with a un assisted rollout.

This has a tendency to not carry much weight since the EHR vendors have promised so much in terms of gains. For us in the industry we know how and why medical scribes greatly increase productivity. But if you were on the fence before about scribes we’ve brought you this case study to illustrate their real power and benefit for your facility.
