Employing Medical Scribing to Increase Revenue and Decrease Physician  Burnout

Physicians spend about 50% of their time documenting patient visits and only 27% with direct patient care.  Physician burnout leads to unhappy physicians and patients, poor  physician performance, and a strain on the medical practice as these physicians can  create unproductive, stressful environments.

A study published in JAMA Dermatology followed the implementation of a scribe program over 12 months in a large dermatology practice. The findings included a 50% reduction in documenting time, a willingness by 79% of physicians to increase their patient volumes, and a 7.7% increase in revenue. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the pros and cons of physical, virtual and dictation scribing options
  • Discuss how to determine which scribing solutions are the best fit for your practice
  • Explain how scribing can reduce physician burnout by improving work-life balance
  • Discuss how you can increase your physician productivity and return-on-investment by increasing the number of patients seen per hour
  • Provide you with a medical scribe options calculator that will help you identify the annual cost savings from each type of scribing solution.
