News on the Medical Scribe Front

July 2017 scribe of the month

We're proud of our scribe of the month winners!

HR_SOTM_Logo.pngOur scribes work tirelessly day and night serving the best doctors practicing medicine. We believe every single one of them is amazing, but every once in a while there are a handful of scribes who go above and beyond. The PhysAssist Scribe of the Month (SOTM) program was developed to recognize a few stellar individuals each month who embody the essence of what it means to be a scribe. We view these attributes as sincere, caring, responsive, innovative, balanced and efficient.

How It Works
Every month, outstanding scribes are nominated for a Scribe Spotlight by members of their team or fellow scribes. We've poured over all of this month's nominees and are proud to announce those selected to be Scribe of the Month for July 2017 in each region that we service across the country. Check 'em out below! #SOTM



"I was so exciting to be selected as a nominee for scribe of the month and even more when I received the call that I had been chosen for the north eastern region. I am so honored to have been chosen. It makes all of the hard work and dedication worth it!"

 Reason for Nomination: 

Brianna Tori - Northeast Group.jpeg

"Brianna was phenomenal in the seemingly effortless job of simultaneously meeting the demands of a busy ED day and still making time for [the trainee] to become familiar with the details of the EMR through careful observation and a little practice with some of the functions. In training with Brianna, [the scribe] felt challenged, but never overwhelmed or intimidated by the tasks asked of [them]. [The trainee] left the training shift feeling confident in [their] understanding of the EMR and dictation procedures and motivated to take on a bit larger role in [the] next training shift and that wouldn't be true if not for Brianna's astonishing effort in training [them] today."

What are your future career aspirations?

I have always aspired to be a physician. After working as a scribe I have decided to apply to osteopathic medical school with the end goal of becoming an OB/GYN. My goal is to make women feel comfortable talking about their health and put themselves first in their lives.

What is the best part of working on your team?

My team is made up of 6 different locations. Our main hospital is in Ann Arbor, MI which is a level 1 trauma center. We also work at another level 1 trauma center in Livonia, MI. Three sites are smaller 10-15 bed emergency departments and the last is an urgent care site. By working at all facilities we get to see a wide range of the population of Metro Detroit as well as working with and getting to know many different providers.





"I am definitely surprised and humbled by this recognition!  I am sure that there many greats candidates out there, like everyone (Renee, Demario, Kyle, Eboni, and Chriss) on my team who are all so helpful!"

Reason for Nomination: David Vo- Mid Atlantic.jpg

"David submitted a vacation request for an out of town training from 08/01-08/22. The team lost a few scribes unexpectedly and David took it upon himself to reschedule his out of town training without being asked. His message to the scheduler was " I would like to cancel my vacation request for August to help fill in some shifts, because I know it will help PhysAssist and my fellow coworkers." This is a true testament to David's dedication to his team and the providers he works with!"

Why did you choose to become a scribe?

I did not to be just any scribe but an ED scribe.  It allowed me to get a feel for every specialty in medical field, while getting the experience I needed.  The exposure I get from working with the variety of cases and the chance to work with many healthcare providers made me want to be a scribe.

If you weren't going into Medicine, what else would you be interested in?

I would probably go into politics because I would have the chance to actually make a difference in my community.





"I am so honored to be chosen as Scribe of the Month, especially because there are so many others highly qualified for the title so I exalted that I was chosen."

Reason for nomination: Central - Molly Connor.jpg

"I am nominating Molly because she is truly dedicated to her team. She is always willing to help with shift coverage; even it comes up at last minute. She works well with all of our providers and is very patient with everyone. Molly looks out for others on the team, and it is clear she is very caring. This is not just a onetime occurrence, but this is something she consistently does. Because of this, I think she definitely deserves to be nominated as scribe of the month."

What are your future career aspirations?

When I am finished with my undergraduate degree in two years I am interested in taking a gap year and working as a CTS for PhysAssist. I think it would be wonderful to take the time off and travel and kind of regroup myself before starting school again, and I am curious as to how emergency medicine is practiced in different hospitals and different parts of the country so that would be beneficial in gaining more knowledge. After that I would like to go to PA school.

How do you prefer to spend your free time?

Living in Duluth Minnesota there are several outdoorsy activities to do, so I enjoy getting outside and exploring the many great aspects of Duluth. I also read a lot when I have free time.

"I love my team and it feels so great to know they also appreciate the hard work I put into this job. We hear all the time how a successful ER is determined by how well people work together. I am glad that what I have done has helped our team!"

Reason for Nomination: July SOTM Texas.png

“For working a double during a last minute doc swap."

"Mallory is always available to help with shift coverage. She is one of our best trainers on the floor. All the physicians enjoy working with her. Mallory prior to every one of her shifts refills all of our printing stations, a gesture that goes unnoticed but I do not remember the last time I had to refill the printer, because of the fact that she is always doing it.

"We were short staffed this past month and an unexpected trade put us in a position where we needed to generate another scribe shift out of thin air. She was willing to work a double on the day. Never complained, she took it in stride."

What made you want to be a scribe?

While looking for an opportunity to both expose myself to medicine and earn money, I came across the job description for a scribe in the ER. Immediately I was excited by the idea of being able to observe the inner workings of the fast-paced life of an ER physician as well as how they work with nurses, techs, and all other staff to care for people in need.

Do you have a hidden talent?

As far as party tricks go, the best I can do is say the alphabet backwards. Perhaps the more applicable talent, brought to my attention after polling my family members, is being creative through drawing, painting, or paper crafts. While the inspiration to complete artwork is more sporadic than it used to be, I love decorating party favors, creating giant paper flowers, and drawing whatever comes to mind.
