What is a Medical Scribe?

A Medical Scribe is a revolutionary concept in modern medicine. Traditionally, a physician's job has focused solely on direct patient contact and care. However, the advent of the Electronic Health Record (EHR) created an overload of documentation and clerical responsibilities that slows physicians down and pulls them away from actual patient care. To relieve the documentation overload, physicians across the country are turning to Medical Scribe services.

What Are The Core Functions Of A Scribe?

The central role of the Medical Scribe is to relieve the physician of documentation duties, which allows the physician to focus more directly on patient care.

  • Under the direction of the physician, Scribes observe the physician during patient encounters and performs documentation on the physician’s behalf.
  • At the physician’s request, the Scribe must be able to locate past medical records, prior lab/radiology results, or past visit histories for the physician to review.
  • A Scribe’s role is limited to documentation and efficiency management for the physician - they do not touch patients and do not engage in any type of patient care.
