  • Industrious indeed, to use medical students who need good premedical letters of recommendations to get into medical school. Should be very motivated to do a good job. Wonder what they get paid? For me, my load is not so much that I can’t chart and make eye contact with the patient simultaneously right now, but higher patient volume would do that certainly. It was also interesting to see them pushing higher levels of coding to offset the cost of scribe services.
