"What makes Augmedix so promising is that the service seamlessly combines remote scribe operations with scalable technology," said Dr. Lundquist. "This unique human-in-the-loop model enables clinicians to have natural conversations with their patients while the system ambiently documents important information into the EHR, in real-time. There’s no pausing to dictate commands, manually input patient data, press buttons, or invoke wake works. I have been a big believer in Augmedix’s remote documentation service and, as an early adopter and a regular user of the service, I can attest to the value it can provide to clinicians and health care organizations."
