Texas Medical Scribe FAQs
A medical scribe in Texas is an individual highly trained in medical documentation who assists one or more Texas healthcare providers throughout a patient encounter. Texas medical providers have traditionally submitted written documentation or verbally dictated Texas patient charts. However, with the advent of the Electronic Medical Record (EMR), Texas healthcare providers are now required to perform the clerical aspect of patient charts, leaving a limited amount of time for physician-patient interactions in Texas.
Texas medical scribe act as a personal assistant to the provider when it comes to recording medical information. This is done by supporting the documentation and clerical needs of the Texas-area physician. A scribe's main responsibility is to document findings in a patient's chart by observing the patient encounter. Because of the EMR, there is an overwhelming amount of data that Texas physicians must record. The burden of clerical responsibilities has made patient-physician interaction brief and impersonal, leading to low patient satisfaction throughout Texas.
Our Texas scribe service provides physicians with the advantages of increased time with patients, decreased charting burden, and improved physician efficiency, subsequently improving Texas-area patient care and satisfaction. The medical industry throughout Texas is rapidly shifting to the use of medical scribes in an effort to enhance the quality of patient care while simultaneously increasing physician productivity and efficiency.
The Texas medical scribe course was originally set up for medical students that wanted an advantage before beginning their medical education. PAs, NPs, and nurses also quickly realized that scribing throughout Texas took them to the top of their classes in professional Texas-area medical school. The new group of people that we are seeing interested in scribing are Texas-area people that choose this for a career. The advantage of a career scribe is that the Texas physician does not have constant turnover. The disadvantage is that a Texas medical scribe that plans to work for a physician for 10+ years is limited by the pay that they can receive if they work for Texas-area scribe companies.
At this time, the only way for a trained Texas medical scribe to find a physician, and for a physician to find a trained scribe, is through a medical scribe company that operates in Texas. These companies typically charge the Texas healthcare provider $23/hr, and pays the Texas scribe minimum wage. When Scribes4Hire originated, we thought this discrepancy was ridiculous. There are many fees that go into developing a trained Texas medical scribe including recruiting, education, insurance costs, taxes, accountants, and firm management. However, as a business serving Texas, we have managed to limit them. We do not charge the Texas physicians as much as we could, and we attempt to compensate the Texas scribes fairly. We have come to realize that the only way the Texas scribe can truly get paid what they deserve is by working for the provider directly, which is why we developed Scribes4Hire. You will apply directly to the service of the Texas-area physician, PA, or NP. In essence, the Texas healthcare provider pays less and the Texas scribes can be compensated more, removing the “middle man.”
Over time, I have found many people inquiring about being a scribe in Texas. I explain to them that if they can pass the course that gives them the core base of medicine, they will usually succeed. There is a need for scribes and a limited number of Texas pre-medical students. The medical scribe profession will have to adjust to the non-traditional pathway of hiring career employees for Texas-area scribing needs. This course offers anyone and everyone a chance to make a career as a medical scribe throughout Texas.
This course is structured into two basic components.
The first part of the Texas medical scribe course teaches you how to complete a medical note, using a stepwise approach. After you are taught the elements of a medical note, you will perfect your documentation by completing notes on more than 40 mock patient scenarios, all online from your Texas home or office. You will be able to view the clock, the patient scenario, and the chart template at the same time. With each section, you will be given less time to complete the medical note. Your ultimate goal is to document a complete, error-free note within 10 minutes. Typically, Texas-area physicians will see 2-8 patients in an hour, so speed with accuracy is a necessary requirement to work with a Texas health provider.
The second part of the Texas medical scribe course presents and teaches core medical terminology and medical concepts. This material must be mastered before you can document a medical note since they are documented using medical terminology. When you pass the multiple-choice final, you will have demonstrated a strong base of medical terminology knowledge that will be needed to work as a scribe somewhere in Texas.
You will also be introduced to "dot phrases" and templates that can speed up your documentation when you are working a scribe in Texas. Texas scribes that set up and use dot phrases and templates can typically complete most of the medical notes during the initial encounter. This should be your overall goal while completing this Texas scribe training course.
If you have any questions while you take the Texas medical scribe training course, please feel free to contact an instructor for support.
Upon successful completion of your Texas scribe training program, you will receive a certificate of completion from Scribes4Hire. Formal certification is voluntary for the medical scribe profession in Texas. However, certification illustrates your commitment to succeed at your future Texas healthcare provider. Regardless of education level and job experience, certification indicates a standardized level of knowledge and documentation skills.
The importance of the Texas certification course is to guarantee to Texas-area employers that an individual has met minimum standards of performance. Many Texas healthcare providers do not have the time or resources to train a medical scribe in Texas and are looking for trained Texas scribes, ready to work in an already established medical practice.
You will have a competitive edge in the Texas marketplace if you hold a certification. This gives you the opportunity to earn more money and have more career flexibility throughout Texas. There are several online certification exams that are available for Texas medical scribes who have experience working in a clinical setting. You may want to consider adding these to your resume, in addition to your Scribes4Hire certification.
This course is entirely online and can be accessed by nearly all computers in Texas.
You will receive three months to complete the Texas scribe training program. The course close date will be determined at the time of registration. Once the Texas scribe training course closes, the student will no longer have access. If the course is not completed when it closes, you may repurchase the course. The will be no course extensions granted, so plan accordingly. You are only eligible for one scholarship. If time lapsed for completion, you will have to repurchase the Texas scribe course.
Most Texas hospitals and clinics will only hire an applicant who possesses a high school diploma or equivalent. Many national certification exams require a high school diploma or equivalent to sit for a certification exam. Scribes4Hire recommends that you have a high school diploma or equivalent before enrolling in our Texas scribe training program.
Texas students will be required to earn at least 80% to pass all the module quizzes and the multiple-choice final. Your grade will be based on the quality of the written final. The goal of the written final is to complete an error-free medical note under 10 minutes, which is required by most Texas healthcare providers. If your score is borderline between two grades, the score on the multiple-choice final will be taken into consideration to determine the final grade of the class. There will be no retakes on the final written exam within your Texas scribe training course.
Your grade for the completed Texas scribe course will be based on one final written medical note. Texas students will earn 1 to 5 stars based on the final. The highest grade possible is 5 stars with the lowest possibility being 1 star. You will not be able to retake the written final. All grades are final once they are submitted.
When you have completed the Texas medical scribe course, you will be allowed to post your résumé on the Scribe Connection Job Posting Board for Texas. At that point, you will be able to view and contact all Texas-area providers that are looking for a scribe through the Scribes4Hire website. The Texas healthcare providers and Texas scribes on the Job Posting Board are located throughout the entire United States. You can apply directly to the location site of your choice. The Texas-area provider will also be able to view all scribes on the job board and contact them directly. The difficult part is not learning the course material or passing the quizzes and final examinations, but finding a medical scribe position in Texas that fits your career goals and busy schedule. The advantage of using the Scribes4Hire job board is that you will be able to pick a scribe specialty that interests you and earn a much higher hourly wage. Typically, Texas medical scribe staffing companies will assign you to a Texas-area clinic where they have a need, and the location and specialty are not taken into consideration. Also, as a direct-hire Texas medical scribe, you will negotiate a fair and equitable hourly wage that fits your needs and lifestyle.
One of the most difficult notes for my Texas scribes to learn is the H P. Even if you work at a clinic in Texas where SOAP notes are used, you should understand the concept behind the H P note. The SOAP note is an abbreviated H P. If you enter the medical scribe profession in Texas with your goal of continuing onto medical, PA, or NP school, these notes will be used commonly and should be understood thoroughly for your education.
Yes, the notes will be different but are typically much easier than what is covered in this Texas scribing course. Many subspecialty providers throughout Texas will use SOAP notes or clinic notes.
Scribes4Hire offers subspecialty courses that focus on a specific medical specialty. For example, if you have an interest in scribing for a Urologist in Texas, we offer a certificate for urology medical scribing. This subspecialty course is separate from the core Scribes4Hire Texas-area scribing course. You are required to take the Texas general medical course before you can take a subspecialty course as the general course covers all the medical basics. Before someone can learn and understand a specific body system and treatment, he or she must have an idea of how the body systems are related. There will be additional coursework and tuition to earn the subspecialty certification.
