Transcription Plus, LLC Medically-Certified Virtual Scribe Services Improve Productivity, Accuracy and Restore Exam Room Decorum.
Our virtual scribe service has the capability to work with most EHR systems. This service will be provided remotely via live electronic voice and system integration as the patient is being seen. Scribes are fluent in system navigation and able to enter orders, prescriptions and other notes per the physician's request with physician confirmation. System integration technology is HIPAA compliant.
A recent article in AMA's American Medical News cited physician concern that EHRs change the dynamics of the patient-doctor relationship. Why? Because physician's concentration is divided between diagnosis and data.
The recent advent of in-room scribes further deteriorates the doctor/patient relationship. In-room scribes typically accompany the physician into the exam room, generating extensive privacy concerns. Many patients find the scribe to be intrusive, causing them to be less forthcoming with important information that could impact diagnosis and treatment. Furthermore, an in-room scribe is generally trained and on the job within a matter of weeks; making it virtually impossible without a medical background to be competent to understand an in-depth medical dialogue; an unfortunate set-up for grave errors.
It doesn't have to be that way. Transcription Plus, LLC has a staff of certified health care documentation specialists with extensive medical knowledge and expertise functioning as medically-certified virtual scribes. Medically-certified virtual scribes are an innovation for modern medicine; a personal assistant to the physician that allows dictated notes [instead of time-consuming doctor input], performing input remotely into Electronic Health Records. And best of all, medically-certified virtual scribes are often 60% less expensive than in-room scribes.
The routine use of an in-room scribe has many potential problems of privacy and accuracy. MT skill sets are extensively more aligned with those of a clinical documentation improvement specialist than an in-room scribe. It is very important to have an individual with the education and experience acting as the second set of eyes on the documentation to catch holes, errors, and inconsistencies that need to be clarified.
At Transcription Plus, LLC, we're all about helping physicians return to their first love: Caring for their patients.
