AHDPG Launches Medical Scribe Training Program for Practicing Allied Health Professionals
The medical scribe training program is designed to provide students with the knowledge necessary to handle the healthcare documentation activities associated with being a certified medical scribe and further reduce the administrative burden placed on physicians by today’s electronic health record systems (EHRs).
The American Healthcare Documentation Professionals Group, an online provider of healthcare documentation services, staffing, and training, announced this morning at the 37th Annual Healthcare Documentation Integrity Conference & AHIMA’s Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) conference the launch of its new Medical Scribe Training Program for Practicing Allied Health Professionals. This expedited training program is designed to give today’s practicing allied health professionals the information and knowledge necessary to handle the activities associated with medical scribing.
“We have trained thousands of individuals in the art of healthcare documentation over our 10+ year history. In addition, as the only training provider who also employs and provides documentation services to healthcare organizations across the country we are uniquely positioned to connect well-trained individuals with the healthcare organizations which require these services,” said Peter Reilly, President and CEO. “By launching this new training program we expand not only our current training offerings but also our ability to help healthcare organizations better leverage their existing resources and for those organizations who would rather partner with an organization for scribe services, allows us to provide on-site or remote scribes at a competitive rate.
The AHDPGTM Medical Scribe Training Program for Practicing Allied Health Professionals starts from the vantage point that each candidate for this program possesses a fundamental level of knowledge in anatomy & physiology, medical terminology, English grammar, computer skills and HIPAA. Courses which would normally target new scribes (those with no previous healthcare experience) will be waived in this program as each candidate passes an initial screening assessment on these subjects. The course is designed to be completed in 2 to 3 weeks by a student who can commit 40 hours per week to their studies and for those students who are actively employed these students will have up to 8 weeks to complete the program.
Upon completion of the online training program, graduates will receive a Certificate of Completion and can sit for the national certification exam administered by the American College of Medical Scribe Specialists.
