Medical Scribe by AHDPG

Medical Scribes aren’t on the frontlines of healthcare, which is good for those who prefer a little more predictability in their daily routines. They generally work behind the scenes - sometimes from the comfort of their own home - listening to dictations and converting them into written documents. 

Here is a breakdown of a Medical Scribe’s responsibilities:

  • Listening to the recorded dictation of a doctor or other healthcare worker. 
  • Interpreting and transcribing dictation into patient history, exam notes, and other documents. 
  • Reviewing and editing drafts prepared by speech recognition software. 
  • Translating medical abbreviations and jargon into the appropriate long form. 
  • Following up with the healthcare provider to ensure that reports are accurate.
