Launched in 2004 to provide documentation and ancillary support for providers during patient encounters, ScribeAmerica has grown exponentially by developing a full, turn-key medical scribe program model.

ScribeAmerica attributes its success to streamlining medical scribe training to meet the ever-changing demands of a complex healthcare industry. In 2016, the company launched HealthChannels, a suite of three distinct companies to address these industry changes. Together, QueueLogix, CareThrough and ScribeAmerica deliver a complete solution for healthcare providers and systems.
By offering care coordination and revenue cycle management solutions, in addition to medical scribes, ScribeAmerica and the HealthChannels family of companies continue to evolve with the needs of patients and providers in the US, Canada and Australia. With a dedicated workforce, HealthChannels is transforming the entire experience for providers around the world.
“The Inc. 500/5000 list recognizes the agility of America’s forward-thinking companies,” says ScribeAmerica CEO, Michael Murphy MD. “We’re proud of our team for being among those selected for this honor. Many of our leadership positions are held by former scribes. Our valued partners look to ScribeAmerica for elite solutions, and consistent results. For our organization to be named to Inc. for the eighth consecutive year is a testament to our collaborative culture.”
