What is a Virtual Scribe?
Our Virtual Scribes help you to securely manage patient data in your EMR in real-time. Our Virtual Scribe service was created by doctors, for doctors, and was designed to save healthcare providers time and earn more money.
We train our Virtual Scribes to work with you and your EMR before Day 1 --
there is no need for you to train them. Our specialty-specific Virtual Scribes are knowledgable in ICDs, CPTS, PQRS, MU, and MACRA; and they are expert EMR data managers.
How does a Virtual Scribe work?
- Your Medical Assistant brings the patient to the exam room, enters the patient's medical history and vitals into your EMR.
- Your Virtual Scribe, connected to the exam room remotely through secure, HIPAA-compliant VOIP and RDP/VPN connections, reviews the patient’s file.
- Physician enters the exam room.
- Your Virtual Scribe listens to and documents the doctor-patient encounter in real-time.
- Your Virtual Scribe will be busy entering notes, CPT and ICD codes, eRx, orders, and other relevant data directly into the patient’s chart -- while the doctor is busy seeing and providing care to the patient.
- Your Virtual Scribe ensures the patients' charts meet requirements for PQRS, MU, MACRA, and/or other quality measures with which your clinic needs assistance.
- Doctor does not perform data entry during the exam.
- Doctor reviews the day’s charts with your Virtual Scribe via the secure VOIP connection, vocalizes any edits needed to the patient charts, and then signs off.
- Your Virtual Scribe generates referral letters and performs other tasks, as directed.
