The emergency medicine PGY2 residency program offered at Mercy Medical Center – Des Moines (MMC – DSM) is a twelve-month program designed to develop clinical practitioners capable of providing advanced pharmaceutical care for patients within the emergency environment. Graduates of the program are prepared to become fully integrated members of the interdisciplinary emergency medicine team and are empowered to treat and appropriately triage the most complex chronic and acute illnesses presented by emergency department patients.
As productivity and efficiency assistants, scribes aid the provider in recording the patient visit within the electronic health record (EHR). They monitor test results and facilitate communication to expedite overall department workflow. With the support of our scribes, the provider is able to spend more time with their patients and communicating with staff. Our scribes are an invaluable asset for our providers, patients, and hospital partners alike.
