Time & Cost Challenge Before Scribe
The doctors were working overtime to better document and chart patient information in the EMR. They utilized tools such as Dragon voice recognition software and were paying office staff overtime at a rate of $10 per hour to assist in chart completion as well. The doctors and staff were not consistently able to deliver “value-driven” notation without all parties spending extended hours on a daily basis.
Time & Cost Challenge With Scribe
Pairing Scribe’s mobile application ScribeMobile with their charting services, Scribe Charting instantly gave the physicians a more streamlined workflow and same-day, accurate completion of a “value-driven” chart for each patient. ScribeMobile streamlined the process for the physicians – they no longer had to return to their workstation and go through the cumbersome process of logging in, finding the patient record, selecting the generic section in the EMR, set Dragon, speak an encounter in a section, review/edit that section, check the required boxes, and potentially approve/authorize only to then start the process over again with the next patient.
NANI’s original goal to gain ”A cost-effective and efficient solution/service to accurately generate ’value-driven’ patient encounter documentation” has been realized along with other benefits, presenting a very strong case for the continued utilization of Scribe Mobile and Scribe Charting services throughout the entire NANI network. The time savings of over 10 hours per doctor each month should allow for more patient visits. If each doctor sees as few as 2 new patients each month, the cost of Scribe’s services would be covered and give NANI the potential of creating new revenue and growth.
