Remote Scribe

Virtual Scribe

A Scribekick virtual scribe is connected to each patient visit via a HIPAA­-compliant cross-platform (tablet, smartphone, and PC) video-conferencing app. Just a tap of the finger and the scribe is connected directly to your appointment, like FaceTime-ing with your scribe.

As a highly-trained charting specialist, a Scribekick scribe can complete many tasks including the History of Present Illness (HPI), Review of Systems (ROS), Physical Exam, Assessment/Plan, as well as other data entry.

Scribekick provides premier scribes committed to compliance, privacy, and superb customer service.


Minimizing the time you spend on documentation will give you more time for patient care, yourself, and your family. And for many busy doctors, a scribe drive net revenue increases by allowing time for additional appointments. This alone can cover the cost of your scribe.

A virtual scribe allows flexibility for practices that may not have the demand for a full-­time scribe. You only pay for the scribe when they’re needed, keeping costs at a minimum.

A Virtual Scribe is:

  • Flexible – they work when you need them
  • Accessible – perfect for rural doctors or irregular schedules
  • Economical – saves you the expense of a full­-time scribe
