Medical Scribes: mixed methods study by Heather Holmstrom and team

https://medinform.jmir.org/2019/3/e14797/

A mixed methods study. Important work on how to reduce documentation burden and also impact physician and patient satisfaction in ambulatory encounters.

Dr. Holmstrom and colleagues at the University of Michigan did some nice work investigating the Medical Scribe model, and it’s acceptability by patients and impact on physicians.

I look forward to our technology-enabled future, where various tools assist physicians in building therapeutic relationships with their patients. Medical scribes, whether in-person, or virtual, or perhaps augmented by artificial intelligence, are an interesting experiment.

CMIO’s take: Is YOUR organization pursuing innovation in reducing the EHR burden? Let me know! And, Happy Holidays!
