In the ER, a doctor’s time can be as precious as a patient’s life. Emergency Department doctors are increasingly tasked with more demands on their time, resulting in 15-hour work days, full waiting rooms and dozens of daily patient consults. For every hour spent caring for patients, ED physicians now spend up to 2 hours inputting electronic medical records. Time-consuming documentation makes it harder for doctors to do the job they were trained for.

How it Works
ScribeCanada hires the most-qualified scribes with a passion for patient care. Recent studies have shown the proven success rates of implementing a scribe program in an Emergency Department. A 2018 report published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal revealed that 82 percent of physicians saw more patients per hour with the use of a scribe. Overall, the number of patients seen per hour was significantly higher during shifts with a scribe in the ED. Preventing provider burnout is integral to the future of the Canadian healthcare system. Medical scribes are a crucial part of this equation, offering providers a proactive way to create the best healthcare model for both patients and physicians. With over two decades of experience and expertise, ScribeCanada works across territories to offer comprehensive, technologically-advanced and necessary resources for Canada’s large healthcare network of providers.
