Healthcare providers spend a shocking amount of time documenting the medical narrative of a patient’s history, condition, and treatment plan into EMRs. This task forces them to work extra hours and leaves them tired by the end of their shift. At times, it makes them freeze their appointment slot, reducing the number of patients they could see in a day.
ScribeEMR offers expert remote medical scribes who use advanced telemedicine applications to deliver bi-directional audio, allowing the scribe to listen to the patient-physician interaction and document the narrative of the clinical encounters in the EMR in real-time. With ScribeEMR, each clinician is paired individually with a dedicated remote medical scribe who listens to each encounter and enters the encounter narrative into the EMR.
Real-time clinical documentation done by a ScribeEMR remote scribe helps a physician combat burnout by eliminating the administrative burden related to EMR charting and data entry post visits. This simple reduction in administrative duties improves both the patient experience and the physician’s quality of work. So, let’s look into detail at how ScribeEMR remote scribes are helping healthcare providers avoid burnout and increase productivity.
- Sharing Workload
ScribeEMR’s remote medical scribes complete the chart within a couple of minutes after the visit is over. The remote medical scribe reduces administrative workload of the healthcare provider and allows him/her to see the patient in a relaxed state-of-mind, thus increasing productivity.
- Avoiding Burnout
As the remote medical scribe completes clinical documentation before the visit ends, it allows physicians to review and sign off all the charts before the shift ends. It means that the physicians can leave the facility on time and spend some quality time at home with their families, rather than charting after working hours.
- Enabling healthcare providers to see extra 1-3 patients every day
ScribeEMR medical scribe delivers comprehensive high-quality clinical documentation with a high degree of efficiency and accuracy. The entire charting is done as per the physician’s preferences. Minimal time is spent proofreading the chart which reduces the physician workload and delivers the ability to increase to add extra 1-3 appointments (20-minute visit) per day.
- Improved Billing
ScribeEMR remote medical scribes are devoted to seamlessly providing current medical information to healthcare providers. Obtaining first-hand information from the patient, they assign precise diagnoses related to the condition. Additionally, they frame a well-detailed treatment plan as discussed by the physician. This helps medical coders in assigning correct ICD and CPT codes, which optimizes billing and streamlines revenue generation.
- Increasing Revenue
With significantly improved billing and a 15-20% increase in patient access, a ScribeEMR remote medical scribe can help a healthcare provider contribute an additional $125,000-$200,000 in annual revenue for its healthcare facility. Additionally, the provider becomes eligible to receive incentives based on the value-based care he offers to more patients.
- Offering invaluable assistance during the Covid-19 outbreak
When offering healthcare assistance to a maximum number of people became a global priority, ScribeEMR remote medical scribes helped physicians manage the extra load of patients while still getting home at a reasonable hour. For new clients who got on board during the pandemic, our skillful medical scribes also helped them close the backlog of pending charts.
