Scribe’s charting solutions are vastly different than forcing physicians to be tethered to their computers using Speech Recognition Technologies (SRTs). Case studies show that physician productivity and satisfaction improves dramatically when they switch to Scribe’s charting solutions. In addition, the quality of documentation improves, allowing organizations to improve coding and billing, reduce denials, successfully pass audits, and improve patient outcomes.
Compare Scribe’s capabilities to Speech Recognition Technology
|Dictation Method||Anywhere, anytime via|
Scribe Mobile - iPhone, Android, iPad or telephone
|Tethered to computer|
|Dictation Type||We can record the entire encounter while the physician focuses on the patient. The physician can leave the room without further work.||Physician must interact with computer and interrupt the patient encounter and/or spend additional time after the patient visit making edits to the dictation.|
|Dictation Content||Complete encounter, including the ability to use shortcuts (macros), pull content from prior encounters (meds, exams, etc)||Narrative - only what the physician speaks and/or manually corrects.|
|Dictation Editing||Completed document(s) available for physician review and able to make edits if necessary.||Physician and/or other staff resource|
|Output & Distribution||Any documentation that is required is completed in addition to completing the EMR record - letters to referring MDs, faxes to them, etc.||Physician and/or other staff resource|
|Coding||EMR Specialist completes for Physician Review||Physician and/or other staff resource|
|EMR Integration||End to end integration - the narrative is broken into discrete components that allows our system (or EMR specialist) to complete the encounter for the physician to review and sign||Physician must click and pick and enter information via Dragon or type themselves or have an assistant enter for them.
|Results Documentation||Longer, more accurate documentation||Limited narrative|
|Results Auditing||Less repetitive||Limited narrative|
|Results Coding||More thorough documentation to accurately support proper coding of the encounter||N/A - only if physician completes|
|Results Productivity||Lowest cost data entry||Highest cost data due to entry by physician|
