A Medical Scribe is a revolutionary concept in modern medicine. Traditionally, a doctor’s job has focused solely on direct patient contact and care. However, the advent of the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) has created an overload of documentation and clerical responsibilities that slow doctors down and pulls them away from actual patient care. To relieve the documentation overload, they are turning to Medical Scribe services.
A Medical Scribe is essentially a personal assistant to the doctor performing documentation in the Electronic Medical Record, gathering information for the patient's visit, and partnering with the doctor to deliver the pinnacle of efficient patient care. Not only do they support a better quality of care, but their use can uncover or address redundancies in staffing by enabling a higher volume of patients to be seen in a given time without any drop in care. Additionally, use of medical scribes can also create improved capacity for compliance with pathways and protocol.
For someone interested in medicine, whether it is a personal interest, or part of a career goal to become a doctor, nurse practitioner or allied health practitioner, the chance to become a Medical Scribe is unlike any other opportunity available. It offers exciting one-on-one collaboration with a doctor, and is unprecedented in its level of exposure to real medicine in practice.
