ScribeAmerica Announces Merger with Virginia-based eScribe
FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida – September 25, 2015 – ScribeAmerica is pleased to announce the acquisition of eScribe. The merger with the Virginia-based medical scribe company adds an additional 51 locations to ScribeAmerica’s portfolio of over 1,000 locations nationwide.
Founded in 2010, eScribe has earned a reputation for providing emergency, outpatient and hospital physicians with well-trained medical scribes. eScribe scribe programs generated financial and clinical performance improvements through detailed and accurate documentation, fueling their rapid growth into 10 states and beyond. eScribe’s recently launched virtual scribe program is a natural fit with ScribeAmerica’s TeleScribe service, which allows physicians in rural areas or with smaller practices to enjoy the benefits of a medical scribe program.
“We understand the increased pressures weighing on providers, whether it’s the push for value-based healthcare or the recent implementation of ICD-10,” said ScribeAmerica’s founder and CEO, Dr. Michael Murphy. “The integration of eScribe’s programs into ScribeAmerica’s portfolio allows us to reach an even larger clientele base with new and innovative services that aim to improve patient care, provider job satisfaction and revenue cycle performance.
Earlier this year, ScribeAmerica acquired Southern California-based Medical Scribe Systems, adding an additional 90 locations to its portfolio.
With over ten years of industry leading experience, and a footprint spanning 48 states, ScribeAmerica is the nation’s largest independent provider of scribe talent and management. Most recently, ScribeAmerica introduced a care coordination module and real-time point of service coding service, LiveCode. These new services allow the company to meet the needs of an rapidly-evolving healthcare landscape.
ScribeAmerica was established in 2004 as a clinical documentation solution for providers transitioning to the electronic medical record (EMR). The company’s focus on improving the accuracy and quality of patient documentation has resulted in higher patient satisfaction scores, improved revenue cycle, and better continuity of care. The company recruits, trains, and manages over 8,000 scribes in over 1,000 locations nationwide.
