Part time Live Scribe/Medical Transcriptionist 

Location: Kamloops

ICDO is seeking a positive, eager, and multifaceted individual who wishes to make a difference in the field of addiction medicine. We are seeking an induvial who is highly organized, independent, and able to multi-task in a fast-paced environment. The candidate will be responsible for participating in patient appointments with the physician to document the clinical note within our Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system. On occasion, listening to dictations or recordings may be required to document patient encounters when a live scribe was not available. The successful candidate should have good judgement, good organization, attention to detail, and the ability to work in a fast-paced environment. The primary purpose of a medical scribe is to remove the documentation burden from the physician, produce a high quality document, allowing the physician to focus on patient care. Written work must be of high quality English using medical terminology.


A live scribe listens in real-time to the patient visit, or a portion of the visit, and enters information into the EMR as directed by the physician. The scribe may be in the office with the physician and patient, or, frequently, is onsite but different location using secure screen sharing technology in order to navigate the EMR, enter orders, locate labs or studies, document prescriptions and add billing information. The physician uses a desktop to communicate with the scribe as documentation is entered into the native EMR.

Knowledge of medical terminology is required. Medical Transcription certificate is considered an asset, as is relevant experience in the healthcare field. Knowledge or experience with Electronic Medical Records (EMR) is a requirement.

The successful candidate is expected to be reasonably available to work weekday mornings and afternoons between 9:00am and 4:00pm. This position is permanent part time with approximately 1-4 days per week. Benefit package available after the 3-month probationary period.
