If there’s one thing doctors wish they could take off their plate, it’s the heavy administrative work associated with medical documentation. Completing data entry tasks on their own diverts their time and focus from their most clinically important duty—patient care.
To address physician burnout, many health facilities in the U.S. have added medical scribes to their practice workflow. The extra support has relieved their providers from clerical tasks that prevent them from seeing more patients, resulting in happier doctors, increased patient satisfaction, and improved document quality.
Ditto Transcripts’ specially trained virtual medical scribes can provide medical documentation solutions tailored to your specific needs. We’ve been leading the industry since 2010, providing personalized medical scribe services to healthcare organizations in our home state of Colorado and states coast to coast.

Benefits of Hiring a Virtual Medical Scribe
Virtual medical scribes can transform your practice by delivering much-needed documentation support in your day-to-day operations, thereby helping increase physician productivity. Here are a few reasons why you need them in your practice.
Reduces overhead costs
When you hire virtual medical scribes directly from Ditto Transcripts, you save on employee training, office space, and equipment expenses. This a more cost-effective solution than hiring someone permanently in-house. You’ll find that the savings you make each month can make a real difference to your accounts.
Ditto Transcripts offers its medical scribe services at competitive prices to ensure that you get the best value for your investment. And the good news is that you don’t need to sign a long-term contract with us to enjoy these services.
Lightens clerical workload
Aside from seeing patients, physicians also have to do in-patient rounds, administer medical procedures, join seminars, and attend conferences. Doctors have a million things to tick off their to-do list every single day, and the support provided by virtual medical scribes can significantly lighten their workload so they can focus more on patient care—the most important part of their job.
Creates a sense of privacy for patients
One downside to having an in-person medical scribe is the anxiety they can cause patients. Patients often have to divulge highly personal information during a doctor’s appointment, and having a third person in the room can feel intrusive.
On the other hand, a virtual scribe works from an offsite location, allowing the physician and patient to be alone. This increases patients’ perception of privacy during a visit, which is especially beneficial to those who feel awkward with someone else physically in the room.
When patients feel at ease, they are more inclined to open up and be honest about their health issues, increasing the accuracy of diagnosis and the effectiveness of the prescribed treatment.
Improves medical practice efficiency
Ditto Transcripts’ virtual medical scribes provide accurate and real-time documentation of patient records, improving the efficiency and productivity of healthcare providers.
Moreover, doctors who complete their own data entry do so during a patient visit. Instead of facing their patient, they type away at their computer, which may cause some patients to feel disconnected from them.
A virtual scribe can help improve physician-patient interaction by allowing doctors to focus entirely on their patients during a visit or examination.
Addresses shortage of on-site scribes
Medical practices may not always have access to on-site scribes in the area where they operate. This is mostly true for clinics situated in rural areas.
However, even city-based facilities can still experience a shortage of long-term in-person scribes. For instance, some medical students only accept traditional medical scribing jobs for training. After gaining enough experience, these students will eventually quit to become medical doctors themselves.
Using remote scribes addresses this shortage issues experienced by rural and urban-based healthcare institutions, especially in this day and age wherein technology dominates the medical landscape.
