The Scribe-X headquarters is in Portland, Oregon. However, our scribes work across the country, supporting our clients both at their facilities and remotely from a HIPAA-compliant office.
While Scribe-X scribes come with a diverse background, most are pre-health, recent graduates, or taking gap years prior to continuing their education. Most scribes have long term goals of becoming a medical provider (e.g. MD, DO, PA, NP) and are eager to gain hands-on experience as a part of a medical team. Onsite scribes are hired from the community they will serve, while remote scribes are hired out of a number of different communities across the country.
The Scribe-X service is customizable to any specialty and EMR. Scribe-X customers currently utilize scribes across 27 specialties and 10 EMRs. Some of the more common specialties include primary care, urgent care, dermatology, cardiology, and orthopedics. Some of the more common EMRs include Epic, Athena, NextGen, Centricity, and eClinicWorks.
Whether the scribe is onsite or working from a remote, HIPAA-compliant office, the service is virtually the same. All Scribe-X scribes provide real-time documentation, from history to assessment and plan, including assistance with coding and orders, as requested. For most clients, a hybrid model is recommended, such that the scribe program is supported with a combination of onsite and remote scribes. This is the best way to maximize coverage, selection, and on-going training support.
Most Scribe-X clients have requested scribe programs that either break even or better. Whether it be through greater patient throughput, better medical provider retention and longevity, improved charge capture, or effective quality metric reporting, there are many avenues to maintain or improve the financial health of your practice.
