Wanted to get some input from docs currently using scribes. My job out of residency next year uses scribes for all physician shifts. As I have not worked directly with scribes, how do you utilize them in your practice? I understand that they can improve your documentation speed, keep you UTD on lab results, document reevaluation, consultants, and assist with discharge. But how do you get them to document the HPI appropriately without making it more time consuming for you to proofread? As physicians we are trained to consolidate the important information from patients and leave out the fluff and dangerous 'buzz' words like sudden onset for headache etc. I can dictate a HPI and ROS in 1-2 minutes and am trying to figure out how scribes will expedite this for me. Do you typically walk out of a patients room and explain how they should document the encounter or do you just proofread and edit each chart carefully?
