If you are a doctor, you will know what it is, because you probably spend hours doing it and wish you had more time for your patients. If you are friends with a doctor, you will probably know it, too, as this could be an explanation why your doctor friend cancels or postpones dates. If you have to go to a hospital, it may be the reason the waiting time is so long. Paperwork!
You would think that with all the automation and technological advancements, it should take your doctor no time at all. And that’s where you’d be wrong. Doctors still do it mostly by hand. Tediously, line by line, taking up to 2/3 of their average 52 working hours per week. What about the patients? According to a recent research, doctors may need almost 27 hours a day to provide optimal patient care, even though most of the documentation can be done electronically. Can it really? So, what is the problem then?
For years, electronic health information systems promised to accelerate the process, providing hospital employees with the digital tools required to work faster and more efficiently. However, the process of filling out forms hasn’t changed a lot since the analogue (paper-and-pencil) times. Many doctors find such systems too circumstantial and feel forced to spend a lot more time troubleshooting the systems than working with patients. Anamneses, medical findings, hospital discharge summaries, and many other types of documents need to be created from the ground up.
MyScribe automates the documents that need to be created at the key points of anamnesis, findings, and treatments. MyScribe builds fully accurate grammatical sentences, so the time needed to complete the job shrinks to minimum.
