HealthChannels is pleased to announce the acquisition of PhysAssist Medical Scribes. The Texas-based medical scribe company has grown strategically, training medical scribes on EMR documentation support and provider efficiency for over-burdened hospitals and health systems. The acquisition will merge PhysAssist’s robust workforce of scribes with ScribeAmerica.

Previously acquired by TeamHealth, PhysAssist has implemented and managed scribe programs from coast to coast. The PhysAssist approach to full, turn-key medical scribe solutions complements the ScribeAmerica model, and bolsters HealthChannels ability to provide critical care team support to health systems nationwide.

HealthChannels is a leading provider of healthcare solutions and services, including medical scribing, care coordination and real-time coding, across a broad range of care settings. These solutions are offered through three distinct channels—ScribeAmerica, the nation’s most frequently used medical scribe company, QueueLogix and CareThrough.
