The American College of Emergency Physicians branch in Connecticut (CCEP) recently published its Spring newsletter. In it, medical scribe and soon-to-be medical student Elizabeth Wilcox recommended the Ultimate Medical Scribe Handbook to physicians looking to hire their own scribe:
"If you are looking to have scribes at your facility, you could
certainly hire a scribe company. But if you have some patience
and access to pre-med students, I urge you to make use of them!
Grab a few intelligent self-starters, buy them The Ultimate
Medical Scribe Handbook (available on Amazon), give them a
computer on wheels, and a name badge. In no time flat, you’ll
have a scribe."
This is exactly what we believe! For primary care physicians that work regular hours and have access to an undergraduate pre-medical community, you can hire your own scribe and train them yourself! The Ultimate Medical Scribe Handbook and our online training can definitely help you in that endeavor and reduce your long-term costs. You can read the full article by Elizabeth here.
