Ambient Scribe Technology Looks Like a Home Run

Less "pajama time" in the electronic medical record, more time in your happy place (wherever that is)

CORRelations staff regularly visits with leaders at efficient practices to learn about the innovations, modifications, or upgrades that have made big differences.

This week, CORRelations spoke with Kristine Lee, MD, Associate Executive Director of Virtual Medicine and Technology at The Permanente Medical Group about a game-changing innovation: Ambient AI-driven "scribe" technology to transcribe visits between doctors and their patients. Any of a number of setups involving a microphone and web access will do, though it's most commonly done using a cellphone. We covered the article describing this new tool earlier this week.

The Permanente Medical Group includes 10,000 physicians and 55,000 staff in northern California, who practice in a value-based care format, partnered with Kaiser Foundation hospitals, to form Kaiser Permanente.
