Medical Scribes serve as a personal assistant to the provider; performing documentation in the EHR, gathering information for the patient’s visit, partnering with the provider to deliver the pinnacle of efficient patient care. The primary function of a scribe is the creation and maintenance of the patient’s medical record, which is done under the supervision of the attending provider. The scribe will document the patient’s story, the provider's interaction with the patient, the procedures
performed, the results of laboratory studies, and other pertinent information.
