Solving a real problem...
A recent AmericanEHR study showed that 40% of physicians would not recommend their EHR to a colleague, and that dissatisfaction is growing over time. This study also showed that on average providers lost 78 minutes per day or a total of 6.5 hours per week. That’s almost a full day every week needed to deal with electronic charting.
In a separate study Medscape published that two of the top three reasons for physician burn out were ‘Increasing computerization of practice’, and ‘Spending too many hours at work’.
It is fair to say that provider productivity and morale is declining.
Having a scribe is a game changer...
Most recently, Medical College of Wisconsin and the Jon Vice endowed Chair for Emergency Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin, funded a one year before scribe and after scribe study. Over the course of that year patient visits increased 10%. The mean number of patients seen per hour increased from 1.97 to 2.21, and providers were overwhelmingly positive (94% felt scribes decreased their indirect patient care activities, and 88% would rather work with a scribe than without one.
What is a remote scribe?
A Panacea remote scribe is connected to each patient visit via an encrypted multi-platform (computer/ tablet/ smartphone) video-conferencing application. In one simple step you are connected to your scribe in a live meeting.
As a highly-trained professional, your Panacea scribe can complete any of the following objectives including but not limited to: History of Present Illness (HPI), Review of Systems (ROS), Physical Exam, Assessment/Plan.
Because an excellent relationship is necessary between a physician and their scribe, the scribe you get is the scribe you keep! And forget about months of training to bring the scribe up to speed; it takes two weeks or less for your assigned scribe to be 100% up to your customized standard of charting.
