Barbara Wynn, MD Having practiced Emergency Medicine for many years, avoiding burnout has been a constant challenge. Scribes have enabled me to have more focus for my patients, my team, and myself as well as more enthusiasm about going to work. I believe effective use of scribes could be critical in preventing physician/provider burnout and should be encouraged throughout the health care system.
Ken Johnson, MD I strongly believe our Scribe program with GVSU provides a quadruple win: The scribes gain invaluable insight about various healthcare careers (clinically and administratively); Our patients receive improved care in that their provider is more focused on them vs. the computer; The providers are cognitively offloaded and better able to listen to their patients and lead their team; And the clinic and/or hospital clients get to meet and build relationships with the healthcare team members of the future.
