Why Are Patients Dissatisfied & How Medical Scribes Can Help!
The number one reason for this problem is the lack of doctor's attention. Patient travel distances, take out time from their busy schedule, and lay all their trust upon their doctors when they pay them a visit. They also patiently wait their turn to come while sitting or standing in the queue. But, all this goes in vain when they notice their doctors are busier in jotting down points and notes over the system.
The doctors, on the other hand, understand this situation, but they too are in distress. Maintaining patient records is an essential part of their treatment. These data help in future treatment planning.
What can be done?
A guaranteed problem solver is the use of the scribes. Medical scribes help in maintaining these patients’records, thus, letting the doctor focus more on their patients. The scribes are well trained both in handling the system and understanding medical terminologies. These traits help in making them an important part of the healthcare unit.
Now the doctors can give their undivided attention to each of their patients. Work on and treat more patients with complete focus and care, thus leveling up the satisfaction of both the patients and the doctors.
