A medical scribe – also known as a physician’s scribe, ER scribe or ED (emergency department) scribe, accompanies a physician, nurse, nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant during patient interactions and writes down or types in the relevant information to be used as part of that patient’s record.
The scribe performs many of the clerical duties that once were the physician’s responsibility. This frees doctors to focus more on diagnosing and treating patients.
