What are Medical Scribes?

A medical scribe is typically a pre-medical student who captures data in real time during the patient examination. A medical scribe shadows the provider for the duration of the shift capturing all patient and provider consults, lab results and medical decision making.

The Joint Commission states a “scribe does not and may not act independently but documents the physician’s or licensed independent practitioner’s dictation and/or activities. Verbal orders can never be given by scribes. Verbal orders can never be given to scribes.” Scribes may not touch patients or assist in the treatment of patients.
