COVID-19 UPDATE

Urgent Care

Unscheduled acute care episodes. Rapid decision making. Doctors slowed down by clerical tasks at the point of care. Urgent care scribes ensure documentation matches diagnoses for accuracy, and better health outcomes.

Feel the Impact of Patient-focused, Critical Care.

While it may seem like provider burnout is unavoidable, and accurate documentation unattainable, with a medical scribe, improvements in both areas become a reality. Active listening with eye contact and therapeutic touch is more achievable during an exam, along with addressing a patient’s concerns or informing them about key aspects of their care.
Together, a provider with a scribe has improved documentation quality, fewer errors and more time to deliver vital care. That's why clinical leaders turn to ScribeAmerica for analysis and to create a system of support. With the ability to anticipate patient needs, scribes improve the overall efficiency of your Urgent Care practice.

Only in the world of medicine would Dr. Vivian Lee's question have seemed radical. She wanted to know: What do the goods and services provided by the hospital system where she is chief executive actually cost?

Are scribes really worth it? It's a question that has likely come up for many a hospital administrator. Now a study gauging the cost/benefit ratio of medical scribes has been completed.
Epic EHR, Going Live with and without Medical Scribes
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.

Physicians Perception of Scribe Impact on Metrics and Quality of Life
Emergency departments have been adopting scribe programs as an action plan for improving physician productivity. The click-intensive nature of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) combined with increasing requirements of what needs to be documented have impeded operational efficiencies and escalated awareness of the genuine high cost of unassisted EMR.
Can Scribes Help Improve Emergency Practice Productivity?
Can Scribes Help Improve Emergency Practice Productivity?
Scribes appear throughout ancient history as "record keepers" who copy legal texts and other documents. Three thousand years later, modern scribes follow healthcare providers to document services rendered, and have taken on additional roles such as tracking down test results and medication orders, taking patients histories and generally acting as an assistant to the provider.

Bukata Abstracts in EM – OPTIMIZING PHYSICIAN TIME
The Executive Medical Committee of a hospital I am familiar with was meeting last year and, in preparation for a Joint Commission survey, wanted to formalize who can make entries into a patient’s chart. After the usual recommendations of physician assistants (PA) and nurse practitioners (NPs) it was thought that the discussion was over until someone at the table mentioned “scribes.” Scribes?! No one at the meeting had ever heard of such a thing.

ER Scribes Bring Quality to EHR Program
Florida Hospital Abstract
Florida Hospital Abstract
Emergency Departments (ED) across the nation face the challenging task of dealing with an increase in population. This situation brings multiple problems like overcrowding and long waiting times. One solution that has been proposed is the use of a Scribe Program to help decrease the load. The goal of this study is to investigate the impact of the Scribe Program in the productivity of the Emergency Physician.
