Many providers have become burden with the creation of clinical documentation. They have noticed that their productivity has decreased with the implementation of their electronic health record-through a series of screens, clicks, and checkboxes. The decrease in productivity that these providers experienced, leads to the risk of composing the essence of their patient’s story. As a provider, you may have dealt with similar burdens with clinical documentation and because of that your patient’s story has suffered. But rest assured knowing that it is not your fault. The answer to this burden is having a technology and team that meets you where you are and makes it easier for you to focus on your patients while they tell you their story. The technology and team that will benefit you and your patients is a transcription service with your personal scribe.
A Scribe Service Can Help You With The Following:
Document Your Patient’s Real Story
With a scribe and transcription technology, you can document your patient’s real story without missing any details. A scribe will be able to chart your encounters with your patients in real-time during medical exams. In the examining room with your patient, you can follow your natural thought process all while dictating a note into the EHR using cloud-based voice recognition. This will allow you to focus on your patient’s story during a medical exam and not miss any pertinent information. Your patient can tell you the story and you can listen effectively and record with your scribe successfully fulfilling the patient’s unique treatment needs.
Enable Fewer Clicks and More Facetime
If it works better for you it will work better for your patients. Patients seem to approve of technology or tools that works best for their provider, according to a 2015 patient survey administered by Nuance. A scribe works in front of the screen and does the clicks, so you can work in front of your patient efficiently with fewer clicks. A scribe enhances your face-to-face time with your patients, instead of detracting your provider-patient interaction during a visit. This allows your patients to feel that their needs are important to you and enables you to provide better care. Even though, you may still have to point and click during a visit, it is much better than completely looking away from the patient to write notes down on paper.
Unchain Documents From Your Desk
A scribe can unchain you from your desk by saving you 2-3 hours in your workflow. Not only will you be able to save more time, but you will be able to see 3-5 more patients a day. Through mobile transcription technology, you will be able to document your patient’s story from anywhere in your practice, on any device, not just at your desk. In addition, a scribe can also assist you in navigating the EHR and locating information such as test and lab results. They can support your workflow and documentation for medical record coding, unchaining you from your desk and giving you more time in your workday. A scribe does the desk work for you!
