A new medical industry is emerging in India. The industry is growing at a tremendous pace owing to its strengthening coverage, services and increasing expenditure by public as well private players. The total industry size is expected to touch USD160 billion by 2017 & USD280 billion by 2020. Rising income level, greater health awareness, increased precedence of lifestyle diseases and improved access to insurance would be the key contributors to growth. Technology will be a game changer in the manner in which healthcare services will be delivered in India. To optimize costs and effectively manage operations, IT solutions will become an integral part of process management, patient care and the management information system (MIS) in hospitals.
Doctors in the United States are required to use computers during patient visits. This takes them away from patient care. In this new process, the modern technology enables a second person to experience what the doctor sees and hears in another country and become the doctor’s real-time assistant. The importance of skilled medical scribes comes here. Scribes act as personal assistants to physicians and help them to deliver the best patient care possible. Scribing is engaging, demanding, and highly rewarding. Scribes use their medical knowledge, listening comprehension, quick typing speed and creative writing with each patient encounter. A scribe has to stay alert and often multitasks while working with physicians.
Scribes undergo extensive training which includes English language, computer skills, professional communication, medical knowledge, and much more. With such skills, you will be able to work alongside a medical doctor every day and assist them in completing their medical charts. A career as a medical scribe is a rewarding and longterm commitment that will provide a unique learning experience.
