It’s not often that new technology leads to decreased efficiency. However, that’s exactly what happened when the EMR entered healthcare. Now, most doctors spend more time on data entry than they do treating patients. That leads to longer hours, less family time, and increased burnout. Fortunately, there’s a solution.
An on-site medical scribe becomes an integral part of the care team by handling documentation tasks for the provider. This added support allows physicians to focus their attention solely on patient care. With a dedicated scribe, charts are completed the same day, billing is more accurate, and doctors take back their lost evenings and weekends.
