The Clinical Information Manager (CIM) will provide scribe services at the direction of a physician or practitioner (Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant) allowing the physician or practitioner to spend more time with the patient, work more productively, and produce accurate and thorough documentation. A CIM does not act independently, but documents the previously determined physician or practitioner’s dictation and/or activities into the electronic medical record (EMR). CIMs help facilitate data flow by retrieving or locating diagnostic test results and facilitate patient flow by monitoring the patient’s stay, i.e. informing the provider when test results are back, if the results aren’t back following up to ensure they are completed. CIMs review the physician or practitioner documentation for coding criteria and assist in selecting the appropriate codes. This is an outstanding opportunity for pre-med, physician assistant and nursing students, EMTs or any other candidates interested in a career in healthcare.
