Online PR News – 13-March-2015 – California, USA, March 2015 – California, USA, March 2015 - American owned and operated Health Information Management Company, eData Services U.S., LLC adds Virtual Medical Scribes to its portfolio of Health Information products and services.
Virtual Scribes are registered nurses trained in medical record documentation, including ICD-10 which the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has mandated a compliance date of October 1, 2015.(1) They provide real-time transcription, documentation and virtual assistant services to physicians and other healthcare practitioners.
By utilizing highly secure voice & data systems, and through intensive staff training, eData ensures your patient data handling fully complies with the Federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA)(2) and all other state and federal laws. HIPAA provides a set of regulations governing the receipt, transmission and storage of healthcare information. eData can enter information into any electronic health or medical record (EHR/EMR).
The use of EHR/EMR in hospitals and clinics was intended to provide better patient care through improved quality and greater accessibility of patients’ records. (See Centers For Disease Control and Prevention.(3) ) However, the time spent by physicians in personally inputting the medical information into the electronic charts has increased the time spent in patient encounters and the reduction in attention given to the patient. See Wall Street Journal article by Jeffrey A. Singer.(4) Thanks to this new service offered by eData - Virtual Medical Scribes take the secretarial and data entry work away from the physicians thus improving medical documentation, increasing physician productivity and earnings while simultaneously allowing the physician to focus on the patient.
eData’s Chief Executive Officer, Fred Kumetz, stated:
“eData Virtual Medical Scribes are an extension of your office. We train and deploy Virtual Scribes to assist physicians in providing better quality treatment for their patients. Our advanced systems, communications & encryption technologies allow providers to utilize Virtual Medical Scribes within the healthcare industry and achieve gains in all aspects of Patient Charts, EMR usage and Billing, with confidence that they meet or exceed all compliance & regulatory requirements.”
