El Segundo, CA (PRWEB) July 02, 2014
Medical Scribe Systems, the nation’s leading provider of scribe programs focusing on revenue cycle enhancement, will be on display at the American College of Emergency Physicians Assembly in New York, July 7-9.
“We are honored to be a part of ACEP’s New York event,” says Garret Erskine, CEO of Medical Scribe Systems (MSS). “It will be a wonderful opportunity for providers to learn more about scribes and how they improve patient throughput and satisfaction.”
“Scribe” is an old word with new meaning in the medical industry. Originally used to describe a person who copies books and documents by hand, scribes are now in high demand as clinical documentation experts.
With the scribe completely focused on capturing the entire encounter of care and documenting it in the electronic medical record (EMR), providers are able to focus on patients. The results are better patient care, increased revenue, and improved patient and provider satisfaction.
MSS nearly doubled its scribe staff in the last year and plans to double again this year, says Erskine.
“Providers and hospitals started seeing the benefits of having a scribe program in place at the go-live date of their EMR implementation,” he says. “However, our scribe programs have evolved to not only assist with EMR implementation and transition, but to add value by focusing on revenue and satisfaction. We’re helping our clients meet Meaningful Use criteria, transition to ICD-10 and capture information associated with Value-Based Purchasing. Our scribe programs identify how clerical duties are associated with improved revenue or other metrics, customize a process for capturing and reporting the information, and then deliver results to ensure our clients’ goals are being met.”
MSS recruits, trains, and implements scribe programs while continuously optimizing management and training at a site-specific level. A few of the ways MSS assists clients include:
- Design custom EMR templates that optimize revenue
- Assist in analyzing current workflows and developing target workflows
- Provide super-user support and on-the-job workflow training
- Develop “Go-Live” checklists to help ensure effective use of the EMR and scribe program
- Provide monthly status reports detailing site performance gains
MSS currently partners with about 100 emergency departments, outpatient clinics and hospitalist groups nationwide.
