Provider burnout has been well-documented and identified as a significant issue in the modern-day health care system. Providers endure one of the most stressful careers and suffer high burnout rates as a consequence.1 A leading cause of burnout, the EHR (electronic health record), creates time-consuming administrative tasks that wear down providers.2 Scribes, a potential solution to these issues, can reduce this burden and allow the provider to be more engaged with patients, increasing both job and patient satisfaction.3 Scribe-provider teams use communication queues for documentation, and continue to learn as a team to improve medical records and patient care.2
