Drag to view

ScribeAmerica was established in 2003, while the concept of medical scribe utilization in the industry has been anecdotally reported since the 1970's, ScribeAmerica transformed this cottage operation into a national industry. In 2006, we were the first company to demonstrate that the synergy of the Scribe/MD/EMR model could overcome productivity losses experienced by unassisted physicians using EMR.

In 2008, we were the first scribe company providing services on both coasts and the only scribe company present at ACEP, AAOS, and SHM. We credit our success to our generous profit-sharing business model whereby the actual project managers who manage our client's programs are rewarded. By enfranchising our employee base, we ensure limited attrition among management and attract the best talent in the industry to run your program.

We are the nation's most frequently used medical scribe company with more than 25,000 employees in 50 states providing professional services for over 3,500 clients. We invest heavily in the professional development of our scribes by providing them with unique resources such as the industry's only academic textbook, paid attendance to our national scribe leadership conference, online education, networking opportunities through social media, and development of the ScribeAmerica Mobile Scribe App™.

We are ranked on the Inc. 5000 list ten years in a row for fastest growing private companies. In addition Modern Healthcare named us one of the Hottest Healthcare Companies in 2013. In turn, we've been rewarded through successful development of the nation's first "career scribes", that is, individuals with advanced degrees who have chosen to make a career with ScribeAmerica. Our clients have benefitted too, having received the prestigious Press Ganey Summit and Stuart Fleming Patient Safety awards.

Our clients believe in the productive synergy of the scribe/MD/EMR paradigm over the conventional approach of a stand-alone unassisted physician. As the EMR, federal, and insurance regulations continue to impact physician productivity, the need for assisted documentation will grow. We ask that you consider the enduring value of a partnership with ScribeAmerica.
