Scribe America

A Scribe is trained to relieve the provider of clerical duties; thus allowing the provider to focus more directly on clinical care. A Scribe’s role is limited to documentation and efficiency management for the provider. The Scribe is an unlicensed person and exclusively non-clinical.  The Scribe does not touch patients and does not engage in any type of patient care. The Scribe observes the provider during patient encounters and performs documentation on the provider’s behalf. Under the direction of the provider, the Scribe enters information into the patient’s electronic or written chart.  All documentation is reviewed and/or edited by the provider.  It is signed with an attestation by the provider that the scribed chart accurately reflects all work performed by the provider.
