Scribes vs. transcription? It's not just about speed.

Disclaimer: ZyDoc’s core business is providing secure web-based medical transcription and EHR data insertion services. ZyDoc also offers remote scribing.

Transcriptionists and scribes share a common Latin word origin, scribere, “to write,” and can trace their roots back to antiquity. They have been around since the days of committing words and transactions to papyrus for philosophers and kings. In the current era of electronic health records, employing elite corps of language specialists is still the go-to solution for navigating the complexities of documentation. Both transcriptionists and scribes generate clinical documentation under the guidance of physicians for inclusion in the EHR. Both reduce the time-consuming, unnecessary cognitive overload imposed on clinicians by suboptimal EHR user interfaces that require counter-intuitive data entry by keyboard and mouse. Both solve the same problem, but they do it differently.
