A Skywriter is a virtual and remote medical scribe that acts as an extension of the healthcare provider’s arm providing clinical documentation. They navigate the Electronic Medical Records (EMR) in real-time; locate information for review; enter discrete information into the EMR including medical histories, problem lists, allergies, immunizations, and health maintenance; research data; pend orders; utilize templates; format and document HPI, ROS, PE, A&P, patient instructions; and assist with Quality Metrics/Critical Care, referrals, and communication management.
Our virtual medical scribe services have transformed the role of the traditional medical scribe by delivering real-time, virtual connectivity to perform administrative tasks for physicians, while alleviating traditional challenges that plague physical scribes. Further, Skywriter MD providers have seen an increase in billable encounters due to improved notes and discrete data entry. We utilize a team-based approach to support each healthcare provider, enabling our virtual medical scribes to become familiar with specific preferences and processes. This provides greater productivity of remote medical scribes between patients, which translates to a lower cost of service.
