Patient-Centered Medical Scribe Outsourcing Services
Save time, improve documentation, and deliver better patient outcomes by outsourcing your virtual medical scribe from Accolade Consultants.
What our virtual medical scribes can do
When clinics use our virtual scribes, physicians see significant reduction in time spent in non-clinical tasks, reduced queues for patient appointments, better documentation quality, and improved patient satisfaction.
Our medical scribes don’t need to be physically located in the doctor’s exam room. Instead, through the use of HIPAA-compliant software, we provide a virtual medical scribe from our vast pool of trained, vetted, and licensed assistants.
Real-time documentation – Our virtual scribes quickly and accurately enter data into a patient’s record. It includes physical examination findings, patients’ clinical history, and results of laboratory and radiographic studies.
Review of patients’ medical history – A virtual scribe can perform an in-depth review of a patient’s medical history to check for any allergies to certain drugs. This information helps doctors prescribe the right treatments and achieve better medical outcomes.
EHR maintenance – Organizing your patient’s electronic records is a time-intensive task. Let our experienced medical scribes accomplish the job so that you can concentrate on patient care.
Preparing prescriptions – Our scribes can also prepare, refill, and send prescriptions and physician instructions to patients.
Advantages of medical scribe outsourcing
Better cost control
Outsourcing helps healthcare organizations save money by lowering administrative costs and improving process efficiencies. Virtual scribes also require zero overhead costs, unlike in-person scribes who need training and additional in-house space and equipment.
Outsourcing shifts this burden to the outsourcing vendor, helping you strengthen cash flow management and reduce monthly expenditure. Funds for recruiting, training, and maintaining skilled personnel can be used instead to improve your practice.
The EHR has revolutionized data sharing for physicians, but it has also brought a significant amount of administrative work that healthcare providers struggle to find time for.
Locating a patient’s record, reviewing their history, and updating their notes can take around 5 to 7 minutes. If you treat around 25 patients a day, updating EHRs can already eat up at least two hours of your day.
An outsourced medical scribe can do the legwork for you in less time, and you can concentrate on treating more patients.
Better medical outcomes
With a scribe in place, physicians no longer have to constantly shift their attention between a patient and a computer screen. Instead, doctors can concentrate solely on engaging with their patients.
With more time for listening and advising, doctors can provide better treatments, leading to higher patient satisfaction.
Why outsource medical scribing services to Accolade Consultants?
Why invest in medical scribe outsourcing services
A medical scribe can help you advance your practice’s productivity and efficiency. You no longer have to take notes or fill out charts constantly. With a scribe on hand to perform all these tasks, you’ll have more time and energy for actual patient care.
The downside of having a medical scribe present is that some patients may feel uncomfortable having another person in the medical office during their private appointment. A virtual medical scribe removes this discomfort and anxiety since they can function remotely. Patients will feel more relaxed with a digital and out-of-sight presence in the examination room.
All in all, virtual scribes help streamline documentation, allowing doctors to accommodate more patient appointments and improve their quality of care.

Frequently Asked Questions
A medical scribe is more than just being a personal assistant to a physician. They help doctors focus on caring for patients by shouldering clerical tasks. Such activities include gathering and organizing data for electronic health records (EHR), taking detailed notes during patient interviews, reviewing patient medical histories, and more.
Medical scribes enhance your practice’s efficiency and productivity. You don’t have to constantly take notes or document charts in real-time. With a scribe taking care of all these tasks, you’ll have more time and energy to meet with more patients. They also help in improving doctor-patient interactions. Because you don’t have to deal with the patient’s electronic medical records during your checkups, you can talk to your patients without the distraction of a computer or tablet screen.
It depends! We’ll consult with you first to figure out your business’ needs and budget. Once we figure out an arrangement, we’ll provide you with a contract to sign, together with payment details. When these are cleared, we’ll assign a medical scribe that’s ready to start immediately.
We have a dedicated manager who ensures that all our scribes are providing satisfactory work for our clients. They also provide regular training so that each worker is up to date with the latest medical documentation and EHR standards.
A scribe’s stay depends on their performance with a physician. If you’re satisfied with what they do, you can have them stay for as long as you’d like. If you’re unsatisfied, however, we can replace them with a scribe who may fit your healthcare business better.
