More time for physicians to see more patients, provide better care, and live their lives.
Physicians Angels provides one-of-a-kind EMR data management services to healthcare providers through our real-time Virtual Scribe service.
We designed our Virtual Scribe service to free clinicians from the burdensome requirements of EMR documentation and allow providers to spend
time focusing on patients instead of notes.
On average our “Angels” help providers find at least 5 hours per week (usually more) for more enjoyable activities such as time with family and friends. We also have found that by allowing providers to focus on patients instead of notes AND patients the satisfaction of the patient increases dramatically.
