Why Choose Our Virtual Scribing Services?

Save Time

Save Time and Reduce Burnout

Our dedicated medical scribes handle all documentation and administrative work associated with patient visits, including charting, coding, billing follow-ups, prescription coordination, specialist referrals, and scheduling tasks. This comprehensive support alleviates doctors’ clerical burdens that steal time away from providing quality care. Most practices save over 2 hours every day.
Direct Revenue Gains

Increase Revenue

With scribes liberating providers from chart completion, documentation catch-up, messaging, and other desk work, physicians can take on more patient appointments daily and remain on time with schedules. Practices typically raise patient volume by maximizing face-to-face time with patients instead of tackling paperwork from 16-20%. Some specialists have expanded slots by 30% or more—this increased capacity results in direct revenue gains.

Patient Experience

Enhanced Patient Experience

When doctors invest full attention in patients without multi-tasking visit notes or getting distracted managing EHR systems, patients feel more cared for. Our behind-the-scenes scribes allow deeper engagement as physicians listen intently, make comfortable eye contact, and focus completely on patient cases without disruptions. Patients perceive this privacy and connection very positively, leading to trust, compliance with treatment programs, and better overall health outcomes. Expertise

Specialized Expertise

While some scribing services follow a one-size-fits-all model, our scribes receive rigorous specialty-specific training tailored to the unique workflows and needs of over 40 medical and surgical specialties. Instead of just learning generalised documentation skills, our customized preparation ensures knowledge to capture precise terminology, department protocols, procedure orders, assessment nuances, follow-up care standards, and documentation templates required by each specialty.

Virtual Scribing Model Works

How Our Virtual Scribing Model Works

  • 1. Seamless Connection
  • 2. Comprehensive Documentation
  • 3. Direct EHR Input
  • 4. Administrative Follow Through
  • 5. Customized Performance Metrics
  • 6. Continuous Improvement
Our HIPAA-compliant cross-platform software lets providers launch a secure virtual connection from any device or location quickly and easily. Scribes access the encrypted audio/video call without the burden of downloads, logins, or navigation challenges. Our discreet background observation allows personalised support without intrusion into sensitive patient conversations.
Trained scribes adeptly document every visit component in real-time, from initial complaint through diagnostics, physician assessment, treatments prescribed, specialist referrals, procedure orders, medication changes, discharge instructions, and all follow-up coordination needed post-visit. No detail escapes capture by our attentive scribes.
Visit notes are seamlessly populated directly into your electronic medical record system rather than using a third-party tool. Scribes access your EHR like any internal resource, allowing them to adeptly enter contemporaneous notes in proper fields. This ensures documentation is ready for final review or modifications and quick closure after the appointment.
Our support goes well beyond core visit documentation. Scribes also coordinate prescription refills per patient requests, schedule specialist referrals, facilitate prior authorizations, route messages to appropriate staff, order labs, book needed appointments, file paperwork, submit claims, update address changes, and manage all other administrative loose ends long after the visit completion.
We provide advanced analytics quantifying key performance indicators tailored around your goals whether increasing patient volume, reducing chart delinquencies, capturing more comprehensive clinical indicators for reporting, or monitoring referral follow through rates. Our insights identify successes and opportunities so protocols maximize outcomes.
Through regular touchpoints with our Client Success team and feedback surveys, we solicit input on what’s working optimally and any areas for improvement. We then collaborate on enhancements like modifying documentation templates, adjusting workflows, adding medical terminology, expanding duties, or training staff to better align support to evolving practice needs over time. Step's

Our 6-Step Virtual Training Process:


Fundamental Knowledge

Scribes first build a foundational understanding of medical terminology, documentation protocols, practice workflows,

HIPAA and other healthcare regulations, EHR navigation, and core scribing skills. This includes anatomy, physiology, diseases, medications, abbreviations, lab values, instruments, healthcare departments, medical coding, compliance rules, and note-taking methods.

Specialty Specific Training

We tailor over 100 hours of training to each speciality's unique needs, terminology, documentation standards, protocols,

procedures, assessment methods, order sets, care guidelines, and workflows. This happens through speciality-focused academic coursework, mock patient scenarios, and shadowing hours with experienced scribes.

Chart Review Simulation

Trainees further hone clinical documentation skills by creating sample patient visit notes across 20+ specialities,

showcasing the ability to apply knowledge. Quality Assurance auditors rigorously review samples focused on common chief complaints, and detailed feedback is shared.

Direct Supervision

The final stage is supervised documentation of live patient visits with continued QA oversight for 30-60 days until comfort and accuracy are verified.

Only once fully validated are scribes approved to support providers independently. Periodic evaluations continue to ensure sustainment.

Ongoing Education

We mandate 16 hours per month of continuing specialty education for scribes to maintain sharp documentation skills and medical knowledge competency.

This ongoing training covers the latest documentation protocols, new procedures, evolving regulations, added medications, best practice adherence, and technology proficiencies.

Team Collaboration

We facilitate intermittent touchpoints for scribes supporting similar specialities and locations to share experiences, lessons learned,

and best practices for optimal documentation methods and elevated provider support. This fosters skill development through peer knowledge sharing.
