ScribeAmerica Appears on the Inc. 500|5000 List for Ninth Consecutive Year
FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida – August 14, 2019 – ScribeAmerica, the nation’s most frequently used company for medical scribe and Care Team Assistant support, has earned a place on the Inc. magazine 500/5000 list today for the ninth consecutive year. Ranked number 3,164, this year’s Inc. 500|5000 inclusion marks nearly a decade of ScribeAmerica’s recognition as one of the fastest growing companies in America.
Launched in 2004 to provide documentation and ancillary support for providers during patient encounters, ScribeAmerica has evolved the role off the medical scribe to include innovative workflow optimization strategies. Today, medical scribes – also known as Care Team Assistants – support health systems with administrative support that helps optimize care teams and improve patient experience.
Through the development of full, turn-key program models, ScribeAmerica has grown exponentially, serving leading health systems nationwide. The company employs over 25,000 scribes and CTAs in more than 3,500 hospitals and care settings. With the assistance of medical scribes and CTAs, providers deliver more efficient, life-saving clinical care.
ScribeAmerica attributes its success to streamlining medical scribe training to meet the ever-changing demands of a complex healthcare industry including the development of TeleHealth services for remote support. In 2016, the company launched HealthChannels, a suite of four distinct companies to address these industry changes. Together, QueueLogix, CareThrough, ScribeAmerica and SoundLines deliver a complete solution for healthcare providers and systems.
By offering care coordination, revenue cycle management and A.I.-driven solutions, in addition to medical scribes, ScribeAmerica and the HealthChannels family of companies continue to evolve with the needs of patients and providers. With a dedicated workforce, HealthChannels transforms the entire experience for providers around the world.
“We’re honored to appear on the Inc. 500/5000 list for the ninth consecutive year. This is an accomplishment shared by our team and the valued partners who look to ScribeAmerica to provide innovative thinking to solve today’s healthcare challenges,” says HealthChannels CEO, Michael Murphy, MD. “We’ve built our reputation as a trusted organization through cultivating talent from within the company. Many of our leadership positions are held by former scribes who inspire collaboration and set strategies for continued growth.”
The Inc. 500/5000 list, now in its 37th year, boasts an interactive database with company profiles that can be sorted by industry, region and other criteria on www.inc.com/inc5000.
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 25,000 scribes in nearly 3,500 locations in the United States, Canada and Australia.
HealthChannels is a group of four distinct, highly specialized companies helping providers usher in the new era of healthcare.
