Voice Products has partnered with Caribbean Healthcare Solutions, LLC (CHS) 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.
Caribbean Healthcare Solutions, LLC (CHS) was founded as a physician and hospital service organization with the mission to help physicians, nurses, and health care administration. We help manage the complexities of the “business of medicine”, while dramatically improving physician and patient experiences.
CHS specializes in recruiting and hiring licensed general medical doctors through the Caribbean and training them as virtual medical scribes to assist U.S. based physicians and nurses with EMR documentation to reduce burnout. CHS recently expanded its offering to augment non-clinical virtual staffing to support administration functions including scheduling, insurance verification, and receptionist.
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.

“Since using the medical scribe it has become more manageable for our physician to attend to all the patients seen at the clinic and completing his documentation timely. In addition, the scribe has assisted with translation services.”
-Leticia C. Rodriguez, CEO
"It’s been an exceptional experience to work with Lamour. His notes are accurate and thorough. He is also always open to minor improvements such as wording changes. He ensures all notes are done quickly as well. As far as revenue goes it has increased numbers by nearly 30% moving from around 22 patients per day to easily 28 patients per day. This has also shown helpful on patient satisfaction given patients are more easily able to get in to be seen when sick.
Overall the experience has been more than I could have asked for."
-Dr. Blake DeWitt
