ScribeAmerica Medical Scribe in South Boston, Virginia

The central role of the Medical Scribe is to relieve the physician of clerical or secretarial duties; thus allowing the physician to focus more directly on clinical care. The scribe observes the physician during patient encounters and performs documentation on the physicians behalf. Under the direction of the physician, they enter information into the patients electronic or written chart. At the physicians request, the scribe must be able to locate past medical records, prior lab/radiology results, or past visit histories for the physician to review. Additionally, within the EMR itself the scribe needs the ability to enter data into the chart on the physicians behalf. All scribe-entered data is reviewed and authenticated by the physician.JOB HIGHLIGHTS:-Offers one-on-one time with physicians-Exposure to an emergency or outpatient environment-Paid training providing a crash course in medicine-Excellent resume builder for medical school or start to your career in healthcare-Great alternative career for those of CNA, MA, EMT, or Paramedic backgroundsQUALIFICATIONS:-Must have a minimum of a high school diploma.
