OUTPATIENT SCRIBES

Outpatient providers don’t always have the support they need. Scribes help outpatient doctors reduce wait times, manage patient volume and improve patient care.

A Customized Approach to Handling Outpatient Workflow.

In the outpatient setting, customization is key. ScribeCanada tailors our medical scribe program to the needs and preferences of each individual provider. While scribes are trained to input electronic medical records and handle ancillary tasks, ScribeCanada also ensures that providers reach their broader, long-term goals. We help you take a step back and look at the big picture — rather than being overburdened by time-consuming data entry.
The benefits of optimizing workflow extend beyond saving time and money. By utilizing scribes, outpatient doctors are able to see more patients during every shift, boost patient care satisfaction levels and maintain a healthier work-life balance. Outpatient care is an indispensable part of the healthcare system in Canada today. ScribeCanada allows providers to implement proven, long-lasting healthcare solutions for their outpatient care team.
