With the advent of the electronic medical record, the documentation burden of the trauma surgeon has become overwhelming. To help, our trauma division added scribes to the rounding team. We hypothesized that scribe utilization would improve our documentation efficiency and offer a financial benefit to the institution. A review of trauma surgeon documentation and billing was performed at a Level I trauma center over two time periods: January to May 2014 (no scribes) and January to May 2015 (scribes). The number of notes written by trauma surgeons was obtained, as were documentation charges...

PURPOSE: The immense clerical burden felt by physicians is one of the leading causes of burnout. Scribes are increasingly being used to help alleviate this burden, yet few published studies investigate how scribes affect physicians' daily work, attitudes and behaviors, and relationships with patients and the workplace. METHODS: Using a longitudinal observational design, data were collected, over 1 year, from 4 physicians working with 2 scribes at a single academic family medicine practice...

EDITORIAL
Marjorie A Bowman, Dean A Seehusen, Anne Victoria Neale
Being realistic while helping our patients is this issue's theme. Given the volume of tasks required in family medicine, recommendations for improvements in direct care or care measurement cannot just be evidence-based but must also be realistic. On the list of realistic: ordering antipsychotics for symptoms of dementia in the elderly, despite recommendations to not do so; ordering antidepressants without fear that the patient could develop hypertension; mental health care providers in primary care offices; forced choice for opioid management; plus agenda setting for visit efficiency...

Previous literature on the impact of scribe programs varies and has mostly been reported from academic institutions or other clinics. We report the implementation of the scribe program in the emergency room of a community hospital and its impact on patient throughput, physician productivity, and patient satisfaction. We performed a quasi-experimental, before-and-after study measuring patient throughput metrics, physician productivity, and patient satisfaction. The intervention measuring the scribe implementation was divided into pre- and post-implementation periods...

BACKGROUND: The increasing adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) has been associated with a number of unintended negative consequences with provider efficiency and job satisfaction. To address this, there has been a dramatic increase in the use of medical scribes to perform many of the required EHR functions. Despite this rapid growth, little has been published on the training or assessment tools to appraise the safety and efficacy of scribe-related EHR activities. Given the number of reports documenting that other professional groups suffer from a number of performance errors in EHR interface and data gathering, scribes likely face similar challenges...

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to evaluate patient perceptions of medical scribes in the ED and to test for scribe impacts on ED Net Promoter Scores, Press Ganey Surveys and other patient-centred topics. METHODS: Exploratory semi-structured interviews were conducted in the ED during wait times after scribed consultations. Interview results were used to derive topics relating to scribes. Items addressing these topics from validated surveys were combined with items from widely used patient satisfaction questionnaires...

AIMS: Methadone is a widely used opioid agonist treatment associated with QT prolongation and torsades de pointes. We investigated the QT interval in patients treated with methadone or buprenorphine using continuous 12-lead Holter recordings. METHODS: We prospectively made 24-h Holter recordings in patients prescribed methadone or buprenorphine, compared to controls. After their normal dose a continuous 12-lead Holter recorder was attached for 24 h. Digital electrocardiograms were extracted hourly from the Holter recordings...

The article by Puffer et al in this month's JABFM confirms a high burnout rate (25%) among family physicians renewing their credentials, with a higher rate among young and female doctors. Recent reports confirm high burnout rates among general internists. Thus, mechanisms to monitor and improve worklife in primary care are urgently needed. We describe the Mini Z (for "zero burnout program") measure, designed for these purposes, and suggest interventions that might improve satisfaction and sustainability in primary care, including longer visits, clinician control of work schedules, scribe support for electronic medical record work, team-based care, and an explicit emphasis on work-home balance...

Purpose: Research in other medical specialties has shown that the addition of medical scribes to the clinical team enhances physicians' practice experience and increases productivity. To date, literature on the implementation of scribes in primary care is limited. To determine the feasibility and benefits of implementing scribes in family medicine, we undertook a pilot mixed- method quality improvement (QI) study. Methods: In 2014, we incorporated 4 parttime scribes into an academic family medicine practice consisting of 7 physicians...

Objective Medical scribes have an emerging and expanding role in health, particularly in Emergency Medicine in the US. Scribes assist physicians with documentation and clerical tasks at the bedside while the physician consults with his or her patient. Scribes increase medical productivity. The aim of the present study was to examine the feasibility of a pilot hospital-administered scribe-training program in Australia and to evaluate the ability of an American training course (Medical Scribe Training Systems) to prepare trainee scribes for clinical training in an emergency department in Australia...

Increasing use of medical scribes is an unintended consequence of electronic health record adoption in the U.S. The role of scribe is not universally defined, leading to variations in scribe training and operations, as well as questions about scribe efficiency, effectiveness, and safety. Studies published since 2009 have primarily focused on the financial aspects of scribe use, but no published studies have taken an organizational view of this phenomenon. This paper describes stakeholder perspectives on scribes working in outpatient settings within an urban tertiary academic medical center...

There are little published data on the use of medical scribes in the primary care setting. We assessed the feasibility of incorporating medical scribes in our ambulatory clinic to support provider documentation in the electronic medical record. In our convenience sampling of patient, provider, and staff perceptions of scribes, we found that patients were comfortable having scribes in the clinic. Overall indicators of patient satisfaction were slightly decreased. Providers found scribe support to be valuable and overall clinician documentation time was reduced by more than 50% using scribes...
