How To Master Coachability That Will Make You Successful

Posted by Peggy Fredrickson on Jul 25, 2018 11:00:00 AM

Being Coachable Can Be Hard

The ability to be coachable is not a skill that comes easy to everyone. In fact, it is a skill-set that needs to be learned, groomed, and honed. Before you can dive into the emotional complexities of receiving, accepting, and implementing constructive feedback you have to understand where you are on the spectrum of coachability.

“We understand that most people are coachable, but not everyone is coachable at a particular time,” according to Optimal Thinking

Medical Journal Review: Measuring Outcomes of Early Discharge of Low-Risk Chest Pain Patients

Posted by Holly Case on Jul 10, 2018 8:30:00 AM

 

Keeping up with current medical research is an important part of any doctor’s life. Actually, that’s something you need to start doing even before you attend medical school. But it can be tough to find time to read the latest medical journals in between your hectic scribe schedule, keeping up with your studies, applying to med school, and having some semblance of a social life. Our goal is to make your life easier as a scribe, which includes helping you keep up with the newest medical research, such as a recent case study about using the HEART score as a criteria for early hospital discharge. (Tip: these are great talking points with your physicians if you happen to have rare breaks between patients!)

New Bill Brings Scribes To The VA Hospital

Posted by Holly Case on Jun 20, 2018 8:30:00 AM

 

Audie L. Murphy Memorial VA Hospital

Scribes have made emergency departments more efficient in hospitals all around the country. Until recently, however, Veterans Administration (VA) hospitals were opting out of using this resource. A recently-passed bipartisan bill,the VA Mission Act, includes provisions for a pilot program which will test the results of allowing scribes to work in the VA hospital setting for the first time. But how will this affect both the scribing industry and the care provided to our nation’s veterans?

Quick Reference

  • VA Mission Act includes a two-year pilot program measuring the effects of scribes in select VA facilities
  • The desired outcome is improved medical efficiency through documentation offloading to scribes
  • The VA setting and veteran patient population will present new challenges and opportunities

The VA Mission Act Overview

Even as scribes were active in other hospitals around the country, they were rarely used in VA hospitals. Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.) proposed a bill, S. 2372, also called the VA Mission Act, intended to improve healthcare for veterans. The bill package includes the VA Medical Scribe Pilot Act, which is designed to alleviate stress and pressure on VA physicians, as well as to increase healthcare access for veterans.

5 Steps to Create Meaningful Change

Posted by Peggy Fredrickson on May 16, 2018 8:00:00 AM

Are You Changing For The Sake Of Changing?

Creating meaningful progress can be tough to accomplish when you don’t know what needs to be changed. In many cases people change for the sake of change, which tends to lead to more inefficiencies. Driving change can seem daunting when you look at the big picture. In order to accomplish effective change you have to break it down into small bite-size pieces. You can not build a long-standing building without a strong foundation.

 

“The first step towards change is awareness, the second step is acceptance,” said Nathaniel Branden
