Elite Medical Scribes understands the nuances and unique processes of an urgent care environment. Because urgent care clinicians are on the “front lines” of medicine, they need to be proficient in evaluating and caring for all patients who walk into the clinic. Though these providers share common ground with family practice and emergency medicine, urgent care is a unique specialty with a distinct skill set, knowledge base, and requires a wide breadth of experience.
The focus on low acuity patients of any age or gender requires the urgent care clinician to have a broad range of knowledge, quick evaluation skills, and treatment expertise. With a wide range of office hours, including nights and weekends, the distinctive needs of these urgent care centers often result in the burnout of hard working physicians. In a clinical environment, a medical scribe can provide relief to health professionals while also supporting an effective workflow.
Specialty scribes help tremendously in this challenging environment where real-time documentation and engagement is critical. In addition to removing the burden of completing patient records, Elite Medical Scribes’ urgent care scribes also assist with proper ICD-10 support, accurate billing and coding, and meaningful use compliance.
Another way that Elite Medical Scribes sets itself apart from the competition is by offering analysis of patient volumes and evaluation of optimal staffing times for scribes. This process identifies appropriate coverage areas and optimal times to use scribes in an urgent care setting. Elite Medical Scribes continuously collects data related to scribe performance and proficiency in documentation. This data is automatically and effortlessly analyzed by our proprietary software, which helps to ensure that each scribe is delivering the highest possible level of service to our partner organizations, while meeting Elite Medical Scribes’ rigid quality standards.
Throughout every patient encounter, Elite’s urgent care scribes are deeply engaged in order to offer methodical and practical solutions to clinicians and their patient care teams.
