    Embracing 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. 

    In this session, Andrea Caliri, M.D.,  MindLeaf Medical Consultant and

    John Kemp, M.D., Subject Matter Expert – Virtual Scribes will:

    •  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.
