A Medical Scribe is a revolutionary concept in modern medicine. Traditionally, a physician’s job has
been focusing solely on direct patient contact and care. However, the advent of the Electronic Health
Record (EHR) created an overload of documentation and clerical responsibilities that slows physicians
down and pulls them away from actual patient care. To relieve the documentation overload, physicians across the country are turning to Medical Scribe services.
A Medical Scribe is essentially a personal assistant to the physician; performing documentation in the
EHR, gathering information for the patient’s visit, and partnering with the physician to deliver the pinnacle of efficient patient care.
