For this week’s Coffee and Careers, we welcome Scribe America! Scribe America was established in 2003, while the concept of medical scribe utilization in the industry has been anecdotally reported since the 1970’s, ScribeAmerica transformed this cottage operation into a national industry. In 2006, they were the first company to demonstrate that the synergy of the Scribe/MD/EMR model could overcome productivity losses experienced by unassisted physicians using EMR.
Licensed medical providers are struggling in an attempt to provide efficient quality care at the patient’s bedside due to annual increases in documentation demands into electronic health records (EHRs), which have exposed the documenting inefficiencies of the unassisted medical provider. Inherent to EHRs is a computer interface that distances physicians from patients, introducing a new troubling barrier to the physician-patient encounter. With services from Scribe America, they are helping make doctors lives easier and keeping records as up to date as possible.
For anyone that is looking for a career in the medical field, this is a great opportunity to get in! Scribe America will be at Coffee and Careers this Wednesday, April 13th, from 10-11:30 am. For students who attend, free pastries and drinks will be provided. Do not miss this opportunity to jumpstart you career!
