Are you looking to increase your physician's productivity and job satisfaction, documentation compliance and create a better environment for your patients? EPPA's scribe program is dedicated to making a difference in emergency departments, hospitals and clinics across Minnesota. We would love to discuss how scribes could benefit your practice. Contact us today.
The program medical director, Dr. Bryant has extensive experience in EHR development and implementation. As an active member of the Epic build team since 2005, Dr. Bryant has created multiple efficiency tools within Epic and has worked closely with multiple EHRs.
Our implementation team includes our physician director, program coordinator and implementation specialists to manage the start-up of your scribe program from the beginning, providing more than 20 years of combined experience.
In 2017 we began using telescribes at some of our hospitals. This innovative approach to scribing allows our scribes to gain a similar in-person experience during the patient-provider interaction while working remotely. Telescribes assist providers with all of their documentation needs from a remote location using modern technology to allow for a similar experience had by an in-person scribe. EPPA assists hospitals who, without the existence of telescribes, would be unable to utilize scribes due to rural locations.
Our telescribes reside in our Bloomington corporate office and perform the same crucial documentation support for providers. The scribe is virtually present for the patient visit via an iPad or tablet that is brought into the room by the provider onsite. The scribe interacts with the provider, is introduced to the patient, visually monitors all aspects of the exam, and documents the electronic health records as if they were physically in the room. The scribe continues to interact with the provider post visit, only from an iPad instead of sitting next to them.
Since our inception in 2005, our program has grown from just 10 scribes to over 300. Our team has expanded from just one hospital emergency department to close to 20 hospitals and clinics, including our EPPA-owned and operated Urgency Rooms. There's no stopping the growth of this amazing program!

We look forward to working with you!
