Medical Scribe Systems (MSS), the nation’s leading provider of trained scribes specializing in revenue cycle enhancement, will be exhibiting at the Symposium by the Sea conference in Boca Raton, August 7-10.
Physicians attending the event are invited to come by Booth 308 to watch a video demonstrating the benefits of MSS scribes.
In addition to improving revenue cycle, MSS CEO Garret Erskine says scribes are increasing in popularity as a way to improve provider-patient interaction and door-to-doc time.
A study published in the American Journal of Emergency Medicine reported a 13-minute decrease in door-to-doc time after scribe program implementation, despite a 7.5 percent increase in patient volume.
“Physicians who utilize MSS scribes say they’re seeing more patients more efficiently,” says Erskine. “By transferring the burden of documentation to a low-cost scribe, physicians are able to focus on patient care instead of clerical work.”
Scribes are typically pre-medical students who use the job to gain exposure in a clinical environment. They shadow physicians into the patient room, capture all pertinent information in real time, and help improve workflow efficiency.
MSS uses rigorous classroom and on-the-job training to ensure only high-performing scribes get into the program.
“Scribes must meet minimum scores on medical terminology exams, typing tests, and charting patient scenarios before proceeding to the next phase of training,” explains Erskine. “We continuously audit scribe performance and provide training when needed so physicians can be confident in chart accuracy and completeness.”
MSS also assists with EMR implementation by designing custom templates, developing target workflows, and developing “go live” checklists to ensure effective use of the new system.
MSS currently employs about 2,000 scribes for emergency departments, hospitalists and outpatient clinics nationwide. For more information about the scribe program and how MSS can improve your revenue, visit medicalscribesystems.com or call (877) 819-5900 ext. 2.
