Problem #5: EHR/Other Tools Inhibit Ability to Deliver Quality Care

The quality of care a physician provides matters just as much to them as it does to the patient. However, a survey by the American Medical Association (AMA) identifies “EHR/Other Tools Inhibit Ability to Deliver Quality Care” as the fifth leading cause of physician burnout at 28%. When providers can’t meet care expectations because the tools they use lead to burnout, it hurts both themselves and their patients.

Whether it’s not knowing how to efficiently use the EHR or being overwhelmed by the amount of time spent documenting, physicians can find relief with AQuity Virtual Medical Scribing. Virtual scribes are trained in the EHR and other tools to quickly capture all the necessary notes needed for reimbursement and quality care. Not only do they save time and allow the physicians to stay 100% focused on their patients, medical scribes also help remind providers of medication refills, needed annual procedures, and other care related details.

When physicians are not distracted by trying to remember and capture all the needed notes in the EHR, they spend more face-to-face time with their patient. The virtual scribes take care of the administrative burden so the physician can focus on what the patient is saying and any cues from body language as they perform the examinations. These tiny details can make a huge difference in the quality of care physicians are able to provide. By reducing keyboard time for the physician, virtual scribes help eliminate these distractions from the patient visits.
