Elite Medical Scribes leverages precision recruitment, superior training, expert workflow, compliance and quality assurance, coupled with state-of-the-art technology, to provide medical practices with highly skilled medical scribes in both emergency medicine and clinical settings.

"Elite Medical Scribes is looking forward to supporting Medical Group Management Association 2013 Annual Conference," said Marcin J. Kubiak, Elite Medical Scribes Operations Director. "We recognize pressures faced by today's healthcare leaders and we are very proud to assist our partner clinicians by providing customized flow management solutions."

As a pioneer in scribing, which started out primarily as a solution for the emergency medicine space, Elite Medical Scribes has been able to identify the key differences between scribe services in emergency medicine and clinical environments, and has tailored its training, program set-up and quality assurance processes accordingly.

Elite Medical Scribes is equipped to provide scribe services to practices across multiple specialties, including family medicine, hospitalist, pediatrics, orthopedics, urology, oncology, ENT, OB/GYN, pain management, ophthalmology, among others.

"Since entering clinical settings, we focused on developing and perfecting our systems to provide only superior service," Kubiak said. "Scribing in the clinical setting is very different than it is in the Emergency Departments and for that reason, over the last few years, we worked very closely with organizations such as Mayo Clinic and HealthPartners to perfect Best Practices for the use of scribes."

At a time when the nation's health care system is undergoing radical changes, practices are facing increased pressure from both the federal government and private insurance companies to cut costs and improve quality.

However, the doctors and nurses who staff those hospitals only have so much time in their already busy schedules to handle new patients and complete mounting piles of the required documentation. In fact, some doctors already spend up to one-third of their day on activities not related to patient care. Without help, their job performance will suffer, and some patients may not experience the level of care that they expect.

Medical scribes can assist doctors with medical documentation and other time-consuming activities. While scribes take notes, doctors can be fully engaged with their patients, often learning facts about their condition that they might not have realized had they been distracted by other tasks.

The benefits to practices that use medical scribes include:

  • Maximized department efficiency
  • Higher quality of care and increased patient satisfaction
  • Improved physician morale and lower levels of burnout
  • Timely and accurate completion of medical records, with fewer errors
  • Lower staffing costs

Elite Medical Scribes will present from Booth #216.
