Letters: Medical Scribes Are More of a Symptom Than a Solution

Letters: Medical Scribes Are More of a Symptom Than a Solution | Healthcare Documentation | Scoop.it
letters in The Wall Street Journal medical scribes, bureaucracy, not patient service, added costs, Dr. Alan J. Bank
Linda G. Brady, CAE's insight:

Two interesting comments from physician's on the use of medical scribes. Dr. Bryant comments, "I spent more time correcting the scribe's note than if I had done it myself. In all fairness, scribes can be educated to properly document. That training is generally referred to as medical school." 


Why the healthcare community continues to forget about the qualified medical transcription workforce?  


I also find it curious that Dr. Bryant believes a person needs to go to medical school in order to accurately document patient care. Healthcare documentation (medical transcription and editing) certificate programs that are approved by AHDI’s Approval Committee for Certificate Programs have been preparing a job-ready healthcare documentation workforce for years. Here's a link to the current list of approved programs: http://bit.ly/1mU5bPm ;

Linda G. Brady, CAE's insight:

MDs Need Not Do All Documenting - "Rounding out the list of preferred documenters were medical assistants, doctors assisted by speech recognition, doctors assisted by transcriptionists, doctors typing, and scribes typing. When it comes to accuracy, Garber noted that physicians who use a combination of typing and speech recognition tend to produce the highest-quality notes."


Glad to see MTs included in this list. I'd like to see the data backing up the assertion that physicians who use a combination of typing and speech recognition tend to product the highest-quality notes.
