Medical scribe services can have a phenomenal impact on the success and profitability of healthcare organizations by increasing patient satisfaction and optimizing clinician efficiency. However, a significant number of hospitals and clinics are too small, remote, or difficult to staff to make use of traditional on-site scribes. Without the assistance of medical scribes, the clinicians working at these facilities will continue to struggle with the tedious and time-consuming process of documenting into electronic medical records (EMRs), decreasing their productivity and ability to effectively care for patients in the process.
At Elite Medical Scribes, our greatest priority is to enhance the quality of patient care at every single healthcare organization we work with, regardless of limitations or constraints. This is why we’ve developed the most effective virtual scribe program in the industry. Through the utilization of advanced technology and certified medical scribes, we can provide unparalleled scribe services to any facility in the nation.
Virtual medical scribes perform all of the same duties as on-site scribes, including the completion of patient encounter documentation and ensuring that medical records meet all billing and coding requirements. However, with the help of advanced video and audio technology, virtual scribes are capable of communicating with assigned clinicians and completing all of their tasks remotely.
By making use of Elite’s virtual scribe services, any healthcare organization in the country can effectively mitigate the amount of time that its clinicians spend on medical documentation, allowing them to engage in more face-to-face interaction with patients while improving their productivity, efficiency, and work-life balance.
Unquestionably, Elite Medical Scribes is fully committed to staying at the forefront of technological advancements and patient care improvements to keep our client partners ahead of the curve and mitigate the potential for technical issues and errors.
Elite’s virtual scribe program offers the following advantages:
Elite Medical Scribes provides a combination of advanced video and audio technology for its virtual scribes, allowing them to match the quality and reliability of our on-site scribes. Elite’s virtual scribes utilize portable devices, typically tablets, with two-way audio and video connections to see and hear the entirety of patient interactions, enabling them to perform EMR documentation in real time. This system makes it easy for our scribes to communicate with your clinicians and quickly incorporate any edits or additions that are assigned to them at the end of the patient encounter, ensuring that patient records are accurately completed and submitted in a timely fashion.
When using standard transcription services, clinicians must vocalize every detail that they want to include in a patient’s chart while their transcriptionist records it word for word at a later time, using up substantial amounts of the healthcare provider’s time after each patient interaction in the process. Unlike transcriptionists, Elite’s virtual scribes use real-time audio and video feeds to document each patient encounter into the EMR as it progresses, making them significantly more effective and less prone to errors. If one of your clinicians misspeaks or fails to vocalize an important treatment process or step during an interaction with a patient, his or her Elite virtual scribe will see and account for it, preventing costly errors from slipping into your system.
When you partner with Elite Medical Scribes, your clinicians will have access to an expertly trained team of virtual scribes 24/7/365, providing them with continuous support and documentation assistance. We utilize a variety of backup resources across the country to ensure full coverage of any and all clinician shifts. This feature of Elite’s virtual service is a massive boon for physicians who work odd hours or healthcare facilities that are struggling to find scribes that can match the scheduling of their medical teams.
Certified Elite Scribes
All of Elite’s virtual scribes are located in the United States, providing us with maximum control over training, quality assurance, security, and ongoing compliance. Additionally, unlike any other scribe service, our virtual scribes are fully trained via The Elite Academy, meaning that they’ve completed the same specialty-specific training and have undergone the same rigorous evaluations as our on-site scribes. Throughout the duration of their employment, our virtual scribes participate in regular reviews, assessments and education programs to ensure that they continue to meet and exceed the expectations of their clinicians.
Furthermore, Elite takes pride in providing medical scribes that can quickly and easily be integrated into any medical team. That’s why every Elite medical scribe is exposed to the unique requirements, values, and goals of their assigned healthcare organization before their employment begins. Consequently, our virtual scribes will be fully conversant in your best practices and have an intimate understanding of your organization’s mission and policies from day one.
Most importantly, we offer virtual medical scribes that are expertly trained in more than 40 specialized fields. No matter which aspects of healthcare your clinicians practice in, Elite can provide a customized team of virtual scribes to alleviate their documentation burdens, improving their productivity, life-work balance, and patient satisfaction scores in the process.
Thanks to incredible breakthroughs in communication technology, medical teams can be more efficient and mobile than ever before, transmitting patient data and medical information into electronic health records. And while these innovations can make clinicians more effective at carrying out their administrative duties and distributing important medical data (such as patient test results), they also have the potential to introduce grave security risks. Fortunately, the healthcare industry is tirelessly working to implement new processes and policies to protect sensitive patient information.
Elite Medical Scribes makes every effort to surpass all state and federal requirements with regards to HIPAA and HITECH regulations and compliances. Our Compliance Director and dedicated team of HR, IT, and Clinical Product Development professionals constantly strive to design and implement solutions to enhance and raise industry standards in order to safeguard private patient data. Moreover, Elite’s virtual scribe solutions do not capture, record or store any protected health information. All audio and video content is encrypted and streamed directly between scribes and clinicians, guaranteeing that patient data is kept safe.
Along with their extensive performance evaluations, all Elite scribes undergo annual HIPAA and compliance training to provide optimal care for patients and protect our client partners from violation charges. Rest assured, Elite Medical Scribes is always aware of and compliant with all regulatory requirements for our industry.
