Medical scribes are an emerging profession brought about by the increased workload of physicians and need for additional administrative assistance and documentation for EMR regulations, health reform legislation, and more.

A medical scribe is a person who takes over the data entry and recording for the doctor to free up time for patient care and who specializes in charting physician-patient encounters in real time, such as during medical examinations. The physician can then focus more time on the needs of the patient.In healthcare facilities that have converted from the old paper record system, medical scribes now do much of their work in an electronic health record (EHR) system.Medical scribesalso collect information on a patient so their care provider can review it before their appointment.

A scribe is a physician collaborator who fulfills the primary secretarial and non-clinical functions of the busy physician or mid-level provider.

Scribes specialize in medical data entry into a paper or electronic medical record system and in instituting efficient workflow process, thus increasing the medical provider’s capacity to provide direct patient care like seeing the next waiting patient, performing medical procedures and communicating with nursing staff.
