FAQ

What is a Scribe?

Our highly trained medical scribes work alongside providers in emergency medicine, inpatient and outpatient settings, as well as remotely – performing accurate, real-time documentation and, managing numerous other tasks.

The primary function of a scribe is the creation and maintenance of a patient’s medical record (done under supervision of the healthcare provider). Scribes document a patient’s history, physical examination, interactions with the provider, procedures, lab results, consultations, and other vital information.

How does Elite select and train their trainers?

How long does it take to get a scribe?

Every program is uniquely developed based upon the individual needs of the provider(s), specialty and location, and as such timing may vary.  For new programs, our client development team will be able to provide a better estimate for your location.  For existing programs, scribe staffing timeline requests should be made through our Quality Assurance department.  There is no ‘average’ set up time, but it can vary between two and twelve weeks.

What is the patient’s perception of a scribe?

Our research and experience have shown that patients appreciate the addition of scribes to the medical staff, as it enables their provider to devote their full attention to them rather than focusing on administrative duties.

Elite has a number of resources to help patients understand the benefits associated with the use of scribes.

How can a scribe benefit providers?

Very simply stated… Workflow and Efficiency.  With a scribe, a provider’s efficiency increases due to the reduced hindrance of documentation, as well as the help provided by the scribe as you see patients.

Reimbursement: In additional to medical documentation, scribes are trained extensively on billing and coding requirements to ensure that your charts are reimbursed at the correct level.  With our scribes’ thorough attention to billing requirements, we have found that physician’s reimbursement often increases due to decrease and elimination of down-coded charts.  In addition, providers who utilize a scribe’s services are able to see more patients per hour.

Satisfaction: Healthcare providers usually choose this profession due to an underlying desire to work with patients, and provide meaningful healthcare – not to spend hours documenting and doing other paperwork.  Providers that work with scribes are able to leave at the end of their scheduled shift without having to worry about dictating a bunch of charts.

Who makes an ‘ideal’ scribe candidate?

We have many successful team members from a variety of educational and professional backgrounds. However, we have found that individuals who are on a “pre-healthcare professional track”, in addition to hard science majors enjoy particular success as medical scribes.
