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.
