Voice Products has partnered with Spectra Healthcare to provide multi-lingual foreign-trained and foreign-licensed medical doctors as Virtual M.D. Scribes. Our remote medical scribes are uniquely qualified to help the doctor and the nurse staff by managing all the documentation and patient interaction.
Burnout and high turnover is a growing reality for physicians and their nurses, and too much documentation is often to blame.
One study found that doctors spend two hours working on electronic health records and other desk tasks for every hour they spend face to face with patients. Nurses spend at least half their shift doing data entry in the EHR. Consequently, this growing documentation requirement in U.S. medical practices is driving fatigue and high turnover.
We've heard your concerns and developed an innovative way to improve your workday.
Our approach focuses on fostering a long-term partnership, freeing you from the burden of documenting within the patient record.
We've partnered up with Spectra Healthcare, a company with more than 20 years of experience providing resources to healthcare providers. Together we supply virtual foreign-trained medical doctors (M.D.s) who can scribe for your physicians, nurses, and medical assistants. Our medical doctor scribes are based in the Caribbean and have graduated from schools that provide a direct pathway for placement into U.S. residency programs. These schools are accredited by the National Committee on Foreign Medical Education and Accreditation (NCFMEA).
Additionally, our virtual medical doctor scribes are multi-lingual and are trained to ask diagnostic questions usually delegated to a nurse or doctor. As as result, they are qualified medical interpreters for compliance under section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), assisting your practice or clinic with providing adequate care for foreign language speaking patients.
The National Committee on Foreign Medical Education and Accreditation (NCFMEA) is charged with determining whether the standards of accreditation used by foreign country to accredit medical schools, are comparable to standards applied to medical schools in the United States.
