The 3 Most Important Benefits of Implementing a Medical Scribe Program
Medical scribes are the best lever to improve physician efficiency and clinic performance, patient satisfaction, physician retention and
recruitment, and clinic revenue. Scribes perform EMR documentation and other clerical tasks for the physician. Delegating these tasks to
appropriately trained scribes frees doctors to perform higher-level tasks, making them more efficient and improving their job satisfaction.
When clinics implement scribe programs, doctors see dramatic reduction in time spent performing documentation and other non-medical tasks,
reduced wait times for patient appointments, improved documentation quality, and better relationships with patients.
In this presentation we review:
- The costs and benefits of implementing a scribe program
- The differences between in-house and outsourced solutions
- And real-world results of case studies in which scribes have been deployed
