A scribe refers to a medical scribe, who are highly trained individuals in medical documentation assisting healthcare providers throughout a patient encounter. Scribes eliminate both the burden and distraction of EMR conversions and ongoing utilization, allowing clinicians more time to focus on patient care.
Many of Elite’s medical scribes are pre-med students interested in pursuing a career in healthcare. We typically employ college juniors, seniors and recent graduates, as well as individuals who have completed a two-year associates degree.

Every medical scribe program is developed based upon the unique requirements of the clinician or clinicians, specialty, and location. Our Operations and Implementations teams work with every client to establish implementation timelines for each new program.
To increase the size of an existing medical scribe team, requests should be made through your Client Development Director or your local Elite representative.
Our Quality Assurance team measures the performance of each medical scribe at every location utilizing a rigorous review process that is supported by our IT infrastructure.
