Financial Review of a Medical Scribe Program to Improve Emergency Medicine Documentation at an Academic Medical Center:  15 Months after Implementation
Courtney Terry, Robert O’Connor, Kathleen Cardella, Scott Syverud (University of Virginia)
Objective:  To examine the financial impact of a Medical Scribe Program used to improve emergency medicine resident documentation.

Conclusion:  A Medical Scribe Program at an academic medical center significantly improves the completion of resident documentation. E&M codes requiring detailed documentation, 99284, 99285, and 99291 were significantly increased.  Financially, the first year of a Medical Scribe Program operates at a loss from set-up expenses and aggressive expansion; however, the 5-year financial model yields a positive NPV, indicating added financial value to an academic emergency department.
