A medical scribe works in a healthcare facility, helping to improve accuracy and efficiency in the recording of a patients' medical history. They do this through documenting the physician-patient interaction, taking notes during patient interviews, entering information into the Electronic Medical Record, and writing notes that the physician has dictated. The goal is to ensure that the doctor can focus on the treatment of the patient, rather than on clerical work. The average wage for a Medical Scribe is approximately $14 per hour.
