This is a non-exempt non-clinical position. At the direction of a physician or licensed independent practitioner, the duties of the position are to document the physician dictated patient history, review of systems, medications and allergies, physical examination, family, social and past medical history as well as to document procedures, lab results, dictated radiographic impressions made by the supervising physician and other information pertaining to the patient's encounter in the outpatient clinic. The encounters are documented in real-time which allows the provider to spend more time with the patient while ensuring the documentation is accurate. Scribes are not patient care providers and thus provide assistance with all clerical activities related to the physician's practice. This assistance is under the direct oversight of the physician, where the physician will review and approve actions to be taken at key junctures during patient care. The final job description and roles to be assumed by the scribe will be tailored as needed. The intention is to minimize the physician's clerical functions while maximizing his/her clinical role, thus improving patient flow and satisfaction. Scribes can also assist the provider in navigating the EMR and locating information such as test and lab results. They can support workflow and documentation for medical record coding.
