How your practice can use an ambient scribe to boost patient throughput by 17%



Picture this: your physicians, fully present and engaged, conducting deeper patient consultations without the burden of note-taking. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well thanks to ambient scribes and AI, this is all now possible. The technology works by silently transcribing and documenting patient encounters, freeing up valuable time and boosting your practice's productivity.

What is an Ambient Scribe and How Does it work in practice?

No bulky equipment or disruptive workflow changes. Ambient scribes seamlessly integrate into your existing setup, utilizing microphones and advanced natural language processing (NLP) to:

  • Record and transcribe conversations with 98% accuracy, ensuring precise capturing of every detail.
  • Identify key clinical terms and diagnoses based on comprehensive medical vocabularies, like SNOMED CT, streamlining coding and billing.
  • Automatically populate the patient's electronic medical record (EMR) with relevant information, saving countless minutes of manual data entry.
  • Flag potential coding errors and inconsistencies for physician review, preventing costly claim rejections and improving reimbursement accuracy.

Benefits Beyond Time Savings: A Symphony of Advantages

While reducing the dreaded "charting backlog" is a major win, the benefits of ambient scribes extend far beyond time efficiency:

  • Enhanced Patient Satisfaction: Patients appreciate the undivided attention from their physicians, leading to improved patient-centered care and higher satisfaction scores.
  • Elevated Quality of Care: With accurate and complete documentation, physicians can focus on diagnosis, treatment plans, and better clinical decision-making.
  • Physician Productivity Unleashed: Freed from note-taking, physicians can see more patients, tackle complex cases with deeper focus, and reclaim some much-needed work-life balance.
  • Cost Savings Galore: Streamlined workflows, reduced billing errors, and improved staff morale translate to significant cost savings in the long run.
  • Staff Morale Boost: Relieve your medical team from tedious tasks and watch their enthusiasm soar! They can dedicate their energy to higher-level duties and patient interaction.

How widely are ambient scribes being adopted?

Ambient scribes are rapidly gaining popularity among physicians, with over 5000 individual practices embracing this technology since 2022. Month by month, more and more physicians are recognizing the benefits of ambient scribes in improving their practice's efficiency and patient care.
