Medical scribes are trained medical paraprofessionals who provide medical documentation services for physicians, physician’s assistants, nurse practitioners or other providers. They work in nearly all medical settings including emergency rooms, clinics and hospitals. The medical scribe follows the provider into patient rooms, witnesses the patient interview and the majority of the physical exam, and then documents these details in a patient's electronic medical record.
Unlike Dragon voice dictation, notes completed by a medical scribe are largely complete when the physician sits down to sign their note. And unlike a transcriptionist, the scribe is expected to interpret the information that they hear and reorganize and rephrase details in a more eloquent and medically appropriate way.
Many medical scribes are university students who want to pursue careers in medicine and hope to gain hands-on experience prior to the application process. Clinical Scribes LLC can help pre-medical and pre-physician assistant students gain the edge on the competition; we have a 98% acceptance rate for scribes that work with us for a year before applying to medical or P.A. school.
