INPATIENT SCRIBES

A doctor’s first priority is patient care — but they can often get weighed down by other demands. Providers rely on our inpatient scribe program to create a more streamlined, efficient way to input electronic medical records and handle administrative duties.

A well-run inpatient program is possible with scribes.

ScribeCanada provides an essential resource for inpatient clinics. Our medical scribe program is designed to accommodate the wide-ranging needs and services of inpatient care providers. ScribeCanada helps providers determine how to improve productivity and performance in each department. Our scribes are available for 24-hour coverage, holidays and rotating shifts.
Our scribe training program is comprised of a team of dedicated, highly-skilled documentation specialists. Scribes learn the ins and outs of your electronic health record system and are also skilled at reviewing and updating a patient’s medical history, lab tests and prep charts. ScribeCanada recruits across territories to hire the best, most qualified personnel. With tailored support, transform a hectic inpatient environment into an orderly workplace that runs smoothly.

How it Works

As a leader in healthcare, ScribeCanada is always looking to the future of Canada’s provider model. Inpatient medical scribes help combat the rise of physician burnout and an increasingly complicated and digitized Canadian healthcare system. In Canada, administrative demands and regulations are now cited as the leading cause of decreased productivity within healthcare organizations. By working alongside physicians, ScribeCanada’s medical scribe program is a cost-effective answer to solving Canada’s growing healthcare problems, which include an aging population, increased patient volumes and a greater need for specialty support.
