With the increased implementations of electronic health records (EHRs) and the need for more detailed documentation, there is also an increased concern that the quality time spent with patients has been compromised. One solution to this problem – backed by research – is to involve the services of medical scribes in your organization. And it’s hard to ignore the benefits – which include increased satisfaction for patients, higher job satisfaction for physicians, thorough documentation that captures a more accurate “patient story” – resulting in higher levels of evaluation and management coding and increases in revenue.
Join this session with medical practice management, coding, reimbursement, and compliance expert Pamela Joslin, who will show you how to utilize – and benefit from – the services of properly trained scribes in your organization. Joslin will teach you how to create a job description that defines accurate roles and responsibilities that comply with government regulations, and bring you up to speed with the regulatory concerns associated with scribe services. You will also learn about the different types of employment arrangements for scribe services, including cost-analysis factors to maximize patient experience and increase E/M revenues through accurate coding.
After attending this highly instructive webinar, you will be able to assess your current use of medical scribes, and determine whether your organization is using them appropriately to increase patient satisfaction, decrease physician burnout, and improve evaluation and management documentation to tell a more accurate “patient story.”
And if you are currently not utilizing medical scribes, this webinar will provide the information you need to decide whether using medical scribes will be an asset to your organization.
