Healthcare providers have enough on their plate. According to The Physicians Foundation, 80% of providers feel that they are working at their maximum capacity or are overextended. Corresponding to that, 78% of physicians often or always have feelings of burnout. Now, medical scribes can be used for a variety of reasons, but provider burnout is probably at the top of that list. The average physician spends 11-12 hours on documentation outside of work per week. By adding a medical scribe to a practice, clinicians can significantly reduce the amount of time that they spend on a computer after work. But not just any scribe will do that. Believe it or not, they need to have some training. That's where MSTS comes in. Do you have a great medical assistant or nurse already working with you in clinic? Get them some training in documentation of the medical note so they can help take some of the work off your plate!
