Geffen Mesher, an accounting and business consulting firm, has served the medical and dental community since the firm’s founding. We’ve been there from acquisition through succession for many clients in the medical industry. For most doctors, dentists, and specialists, their decision to study and practice medicine is driven by a desire to help others. Eventually, they move on from being an associate at another practice to building their own. What they soon discover is that their medical educations didn’t prepare them for life as a business owner.

Scribe – X is a medical scribe staffing firm providing real time documentation for any physician using an EMR. Managing medical documentation has become an onerous task. Medical scribes — highly trained documentation specialists — have been used for years in emergency departments with marked improvement in clinical efficiency, physician job satisfaction, and revenue. Scribes operate and enter data into the EMR during the clinic encounter, completing the chart note in real time as the doctor interviews and examines the patient. Scribes are now entering the clinic environment, and by delegating the work of clinical documentation to a scribe, physicians can:
- Increase their face-to-face time with patients
- Reduce overall time spent on non-clinical activities
- Improve clinic operating efficiency
- Dramatically increase clinic revenue
- Substantially improve physicians’ job satisfaction, and
- Enhance the patient experience
