Become a Scribe!
What does a scribe do?
A medical scribe accompanies a doctor or other health practitioner to patient visits and documents those visits in real time so the physician can focus on their conversation with, and examination of, the patient. Scribes record the patient’s history and physical exam findings, lab and radiology results, procedures, diagnoses, etc.
At a time when electronic health records (EHR) are required in every practice and hospital in the United States, doctors need strong, reliable scribes to accurately and completely capture and code each patient encounter.
