Inpatient Scribes

Inpatient scribes are instrumental in delivering quality patient care. Healthcare doctors rely on ScribeAustralia to help create an effective, efficient workflow for inpatient facilities.

Imagine what doctors unburdened by data entry can achieve.

With ScribeAustralia, doctors have the benefit of utilising our scribe programme to better implement and improve the data input process. The ScribeAustralia method is collaborative: we really listen to what each doctor needs, then develop a customised set of solutions just for you. ScribeAustralia identifies where doctors are experiencing deficiencies and how we can benefit you the most. Our medical scribe programme is designed to suit the individual needs of your inpatient clinic. Do you need 24-hour or holiday coverage?
Perhaps you have installed a new electronic health record system and need assistance in hiring staff with the right technical skills and expertise. We take into account how your workplace currently functions and how we can help doctors improve care for the populations they serve. Australia’s aging population is changing how we provide healthcare nationwide. As the number and proportion of older Australians continues to increase, seeing more patients in a timely manner is imperative for leading inpatient facilities. We understand the challenges facing doctors and healthcare doctors today.

How it Works

Inpatient doctors can spend days, weeks or months monitoring a patient’s treatment and progress. Scribes are an integral part of your inpatient clinical team, trained in best practices for cost-saving data entry, improved patient and doctor satisfaction, and solution-oriented approaches to medical care.

As doctors communicate with patients, our scribe support model alleviates the burden of non-essential tasks, allowing doctors to focus on rounding and coordinating care plans with nursing staff.
