Medical Scribe Solutions: The Next Piece in the Healthcare Puzzle

A scribe is a medical documentation expert who works under the direct supervision of the licensed medical provider. The scribe shadows the physician into the patient room and enters patient medical data into the medical record, whether it be paper or electronic. The scribe’s medical data capture is done in real-time at the point-of-service. The medical provider is most accurate, productive and efficient when assisted documentation occurs with a scribe, as noted through Corporate Sponsor, ScribeAmerica. In contrast, the medical data capture models of medical transcription, or voice recognition software are impossible to perform contemporaneously with the physician’s H&P, and therefore, will inherently never be able to match the accuracy, productivity and efficiency of a scribe. Ask any physician who has waited on a UA, CT, or blood result, and you’ll be told that the waiting game to get data results back can drain productivity. This is another area where scribes shine, for unlike MT and voice recognition software, a scribe behaves more as a clinical information manager who actively locates patient studies, bird dogs medical tests and make calls to other departments like the lab or radiology, prepares MDM by researching PMH, can call patient’s families on your behalf, can prompt the provider for additional information or relay messages between provider, clinical staff , ancillary personnel, patients and their families. Certified medical scribes are a key facet in solving today’s healthcare challenges, and employment dilemmas, utilizing effective model and solutions through real-time partnership with clinical documentation encounters.

ACMSS is a non-profit organization representing and certifying medical scribes for gainful employment with prospective academic partners. ACMSS certifies scribes as Clinical Information Managers (CMSSs), and enables certification pathway to Certifying Academic Partners (CAPs) to academic institutions nationwide.
