Virtual Medical Scribe Services That Work Your Way
What sounds better – having someone follow you from exam room to exam room taking copious notes of your confidential conversations with your patients, or… not?
With Elite Office Solution’s Virtual Medical Scribe services, you don’t have to hire another office staff member, and you don’t need a third-party recording your patient interactions. In fact, we work the way most clinicians are comfortable working: you record your notes, and our virtual scribes convert the audio into useable text.
Best of all, our medical scribes can populate your EMR system automatically, saving you yet another step.
Elite offers you:
Easy services – record your notes, send us the audio file, and our virtual scribes will take care of the rest including auto-updating your EMRs.
Full service without extra staff – Why hire, train, and pay new staff (including benefits and vacation pay…) when our virtual scribes can do it all for you?
A way to keep your private conversations private – Patients are often nervous and uncomfortable visiting their doctor. The last thing they want is another person in the exam room.
One less person in your exam room – Having a medical scribe follow you from exam room to exam room can be uncomfortable for you, too, especially in tight quarters.
A faster way to update your EMR – Clinicians have found out all too quickly that hunting-and-pecking their own notes into an EMR can add hours of administration time to their day, and takes their focus away from their patients. Our virtual medical scribes take care of it all so you can keep your attention on the person sitting right in front of you.
A method for precise note-taking – Dictate the narrative you want included in your patient’s record. Elite’s virtual scribes enter the specific notes you provide for tighter, cleaner EMRs.

Virtual Scribes Keep Your EMRs Organized, Too
We’ve all heard in the news about physicians losing malpractice suits due to poorly maintained EMRs. One report cited four separate court cases in which EMR data could not be trusted. The same report tells the story of a man who was given an antibiotic for a kidney infection, even though it stated in his EMR that he had a kidney stone (which contraindicates antibiotic use). However, due to the complexity of the EMR, that fact was not clearly apparent.
The unfortunate thing is that suddenly clinics and clinicians are being held responsible for the way EMR vendors have organized this information. Clinicians themselves are becoming overwhelmed with unstructured data and reports, repeated information that clouds important notes, data errors due to software intricacies, and complexities unheard of with paper documents.
Elite Office Solutions can help. Our virtual scribes keep you organized by only adding the information you dictate, not the extraneous information that sometimes creeps in with point-and-click or other data entry systems. Your notes will be clear, clean, and crisp for easy review, when you need them.
