Start Your Career in Healthcare! No Previous Experience Required!
A Medical Scribe's central role is to relieve the physician of administrative duties; thus allowing the physician to focus more directly on clinical care. The scribe observes the physician during patient encounters and performs documentation on the physician's behalf. Under the direction of the physician, they enter information into the patient's electronic or written chart. At the physician's request, the scribe must be able to locate past medical records, prior lab/radiology results, or past visit histories for the physician to review. Additionally, within the EMR itself the scribe needs the ability to enter data into the chart on the physician's behalf. All scribe-entered data is reviewed and authenticated by the physician.
