Problem #3: After-hours Workload

While “Pajama time” sounds fun, it’s actually one of the main causes of physician burnout. A survey by the American Medical Association (AMA) lists “After-hours Workload” as the third leading cause of physician burnout, tying number two at 43%. When physicians should be enjoying their evenings at home, they are instead spending that typical downtime still working. After seeing patients all day long, they find themselves putting in notes from home just to keep up with the workload.

AQuity Virtual Medical Scribing dramatically reduce after-hours workload and in turn, physician burnout. Instead of creating notes late into the evenings only to wake up exhausted the next morning to start all over again, scribe supported physicians spend more time relaxing and enjoying their time off.

Virtual scribes handle items such as SOAP notes, order entry, prescription requests, in-basket messages, and prepping charts for the next clinic. By not having to fit administrative tasks into their workday, physicians can retain their patient load without spending time on documentation outside of work hours. Having a virtual scribe at your side means less provider keyboard time, and quicker content rich chart completions to optimize justifiable reimbursements while maintaining patient privacy during the process.

Decrease your after-hours workload and reduce physician burnout with AQuity Virtual Medical Scribing.
