Certified Medical Scribes are bringing back the doctor-patient-client relationship by enabling our healthcare providers to spend more quality time with their patients through real-time medical records. This allows physicians to see more patients and give them better service. Hospitals also benefit by having lower employee turnover, higher productivity, fewer errors, and happier healthier patients.

In addition to real-time documentation, medical scribes increase practice efficiencies in several areas, including billing, patient record organization, workflow efficiencies, insurance, and improved clinical and patient care – both inside and outside of the exam room.
