  • Overview

    SST CIMs provide scribe services for multiple hospitals in an Emergency Department or inpatient unit at the direction of a Clinician (Physician, Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant) allowing the Clinician to spend more time with the patient, work more productively, and produce accurate and thorough documentation in real-time. An SST CIM does not act independently, but documents the Clinician’s previously determined dictation and/or activities in the electronic medical record (EMR). SST CIMs travel to multiple client hospitals to provide CIM coverage during staffing shortages or growth periods as directed by Management. SST CIMs train newly hired CIMs and mentor CIMs during their introductory period, and as requested. SST CIMs may also participate in departmental or company-wide projects on-site or at the corporate office when advanced CIM services are required.
