Medicine is about care, not clicks

Patients have always looked to clinicians for help and reassurance when it comes to their health, and the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted even further the need for connection between patient and provider. But with strict documentation requirements, many doctors in the exam room find themselves in front of a computer to hopefully save time instead of fully focusing on the patient. Patients can find it very frustrating when their doctors seem distracted and, in some scenarios, might begin the search for a new provider the next time they need care. Similarly, healthcare providers are also frustrated by the amount of administrative work required by certain regulatory mandates. The effect can damage the patient–provider relationship. Not to mention that this burden can push many clinicians into early retirement.

Mobile EHR apps can help eliminate this barrier between the physician and patient while giving providers a means to comply with their intended EHR use. Allscripts is proud to present our October 2021 App of the Month, iScribeHealth. Let’s take a look into how this intuitive, innovative application can help keep the clinicians focused on their patients, and not their computers.

Medicine is about care, not clicks

Healthcare documentation doesn’t have to be a bottleneck or pain point at your clinic. With iScribeHealth, a certified application for Allscripts Professional EHR™, gone are the days where providers have to spend 16 minutes per patient in the EHR or put a computer between them and their patients to gain efficiency. This is not a sustainable way to foster patient trust.

A solution for every workflow

Whether providers are suffering from burnout, inefficient workflows or trying to increase volume, iScribeHealth has a customizable solution to drive better practice efficiencies. iScribe recognizes that no two providers have the same workflows, patient volumes or documentation preferences.

Eliminate clicks for better visit efficiency

iScribeHealth’s user-friendly mobile app gives providers anytime, anywhere access via iPhone or iPad to view and enter clinical information for patients. iScribe leverages industry-leading speech-to-text technology to increase provider efficiency. For example, the iScribe mobile app can record directly into text fields within Professional EHR, document exam findings, add templates, take photos, and more.

Frictionless EHR documentation

The one-on-one interaction between patients and providers is at the heart of care delivery, but documentation is the backbone. iScribe’s Virtual Scribe Services help providers reduce the time spent on documentation and help keep their focus on what is truly important: their patients. Providers use their Apple Watches and iOS devices to record discreetly within the exam room. Asynchronous and synchronous workflows are available for this hands-free documentation service.

Proven results

Physicians using iScribe have reported numerous benefits, including:

  • 2+ hours saved on documentation per day
  • 20% increase in revenue
  • 10 more patients seen per clinic day
