Medical Scribe Systems (MSS), the nation’s leading provider of scribe programs focusing on revenue cycle enhancement, will be showcasing at the Emergency Department Practice Management Association Solutions Summit (EDPMA) in New Orleans, May 4-7.
MSS President and CEO Garret Erskine will discuss why medical scribes are becoming an industry best practice. The MSS booth will include a demonstration video showing how MSS scribes chart in real time while meeting Meaningful Use requirements and improving charge capture.
“Data entry should not distract providers from caring for their patients, but federal mandates are making it harder for doctors to do the job they love,” says Erskine. “Our goal is not only to help providers get back to the bedside but to improve charting to facilitate patient care and accurate reimbursement.”
Practices that have implemented the MSS scribe program see considerable improvements in both performance and financial metrics. In addition to a more streamlined workflow, scribes also improve charge capture and RVUs generated per hour with more accurate charting.
“Scribes are a tool we utilize to address a wide array of issues and initiatives particularly those brought on by EMR adoption,” says Erskine. “For organizations that have transitioned to an EMR and have processes that are encumbered by it, MSS scribes are a fantastic resource to address current and future medical record and revenue cycle objectives.”
Medical Scribe Systems employs about 2,000 scribes at nearly 100 facilities nationwide. MSS scribe programs are designed and managed to address clinical throughput and revenue cycle issues and to offset the loss of productivity associated with EMR implementation.
MSS will be exhibiting at Booth #1 at The Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans. For more information about the Medical Scribe Systems program, visit medicalscribesystems.com or email info(at)scribesystems(dot)com.
