Medical scribes aim to prevent physician burnout
from Fox News
With new mandates, time consuming health records, falling reimbursements, and smaller health insurance networks, physician burnout is on the rise. Furthermore, a recent study from the American Journal of Emergency Medicine found that 48 percent of a doctor's time is spent on computers, leaving much less time for direct contact with patients. While working as a medical scribe, Dr. Michael Murphy witnessed this national problem and was inspired to create ScribeAmerica in 2004. The company's goal is to alleviate a physician's burden of data entry by recruiting medical scribes for private practices, emergency departments, and hospital settings.
