EHR documentation is the leading cause of the reduction in productivity for many providers. Given the falling reimbursement from third party payers, providers cannot afford to see a reduced number of patients each day as they scramble with EHR activity. EHR implementation also makes it difficult for providers to see additional patients and can lead to the use of cloning notes and auto-population, which may result in inaccurate documentation and up-coding. Also, it can result in provider dissatisfaction and content that does not facilitate quality care of patients.
According to data from the American College of Medical Scribe Specialists, an estimated 20,000 scribes were employed by the end of 2014, and it expects this number to grow to 100,000 by 2020. Scribes can be beneficial for your practice’s productivity, quality, outcomes and your bottom line.
