SERVICE IS OUR CORE PHILOSOPHY
A medical scribe is a relatively new position which consists of a non-clinical member of a health care team who specializes in documenting provider-patient encounters in real time. It is a role that affords great opportunity for individuals interested in pursuing a career in healthcare.
Electronic Medical Records (EMRs), while a necessity, have decreased the amount of patients a physician can see in a shift. The addition of a medical scribe in a clinical setting has a direct influence in improving patient satisfaction, physician satisfaction, and accurate charting.
Becoming a scribe can serve as a stepping stone providing rewarding experiences prior to applying to a post-graduate school or program in the healthcare field, or the beginning of a long and rewarding career. Our scribes leave with valuable experiences and relationships that will follow them in whatever endeavor they pursue.
At your side.
At your service.
Our executive team is made up of healthcare professionals, who understand the complexities of healthcare compliance and regulations. Scrivas is always looking forward, anticipating the needs of our clients with respect to the ever-shifting healthcare landscape.
