The Emergency Medicine Physician Record Assistant (also known as a medical scribe) assists the Emergency Medicine provider with documentation in the medical record, gathering laboratory and diagnostic data, and partnering with the provider to provide an optimal patient encounter. An optimal candidate for this position is self-motivated, hard-working, mature, and possesses the ability to work cheerfully and cooperatively with a wide variety of people in stressful situations. A Physician Record Assistant should be able to assimilate patient information in a clear and coherent manner. Knowledge of medical techniques and terminology, while certainly helpful, is of secondary importance; this information is easily acquired, while the traits listed above are not.
The Physician Record Assistant will be intensively trained and supervised, and regularly evaluated by the Emergency Medicine providers and supervising Physician Record Assistants. Because of the large body of knowledge required, a training period of at least 4 shifts working with a supervising Physician Record Assistant should be anticipated. This may be altered upon completion of the training period depending on the skills and knowledge the Physician Record Assistant-in-Training brings to the job. After training, a 3-month probationary period is necessary to ensure that the new Physician Record Assistant’s personality and abilities fully integrate into the complex workings of the Emergency Department. Once training is completed, Physician Record Assistants are expected to work at least 8 shifts per month. In addition, there will be required training and educational sessions along with any hospital required education that must be attended throughout employment.
