Meta, Doreen & All
That was helpful information indeed. Your input was much appreciated. I liked the part about increased face time with patients! From a ROI perspective, did your increased efficiency cover the additional cost of hiring & (re-) training scribes? Would you be willing to share a salary range for ED scribes?
Thanks in advance

We currently have scribes in our ED. They have improved patient throughput/efficiency by approximately 10-20% depending on the physician with whom they are working.
