What is Medical Scribe?
A medical scribe is someone who assists a physician or other medical professional by keeping a record of their interactions with patients. Scribes can be found in both outpatient and inpatient settings, and their duties may vary depending on the specific needs of the doctor or facility. In general, scribes are responsible for documenting patient history, taking notes during examinations, and entering information into the patient’s electronic medical record.
