The use of scribes is becoming increasingly prevalent in today’s healthcare environment as organizations look for ways to improve the efficiency and productivity of practicing physicians. Traditionally, the role of the scribe is to assist with documentation, allowing the physician to focus his or her time on delivering billable services and ensuring that that the medical record supports the appropriate level of billing. Today- due in part to the adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) - the role of the scribe has evolved and there is increased awareness around the impact that scribes can have on patient experience.

In an era of big data, high performance expectations, and growing trends in pay-for-value, some organizations may struggle with what to do with this surplus of information. What’s more, they must identify how best to present the data in a meaningful, transparent and receptive way such that the feedback drives performance and creates behavioral and practice alignment. Research and our experience in coaching hundreds of healthcare organizations reveals that organizations and individuals who are aligned on goals and receive regular performance feedback tend to outperform those that lack feedback.

Perioperative services are expensive, with high fixed costs related to both personnel and equipment. High-performing perioperative services - where patients feel their care is individualized, safe, and provided in a compassionate manner, coupled with practitioners having confidence in operational efficiency and quality professional and support services - can demonstrate a significant positive contribution to the facility’s operating margin. This not only provides straight dollars to the bottom line but also contributes by offsetting necessary, but at times, less profitable services.
