Walden Bill Would Pilot Medical Scribes At VA Facilities

Oregon Second District Congressman Greg Walden has introduced a bill to implement a pilot program for medical scribes at VA facilities.  The Hood River Republican says that will help ease administrative burdens that are preventing physicians from devoting their full attention to veterans.  Walden says studies have shown that the use of medical scribes in the private sector resulted in a 59 percent increase in the number of patients physicians see per hour.  He adds the bill is also intended to better recruit and retain talented physicians to serve at VA health centers.
