TeleScribes also assist the provider in navigating the EMR and in locating information such as test results and lab results. The TeleScribe will also facilitate preparation of patient appointments through direct communication with the site. The TeleScribe will prepare charts prior to the provider's patient encounters, serving to support the work flow and documentation for medical record coding.
