Changing the Game in Alabama


“After three weeks of using Scribe, one of the physicians sent me a text, and it said ‘I feel like a physician again. I can actually spend time with my patients rather than looking at a computer.’ So that was the day that I was sold on Scribe.”
Pam Bowers, Director of Operations, Southeast Alabama Rural Health Associates

Southeast Alabama Rural Health Associates (SARHA), a Federally Qualified Health Center with 10 locations, was looking for ways to handle growing patient volume more efficiently, better manage providers’ time, and help providers achieve better work/life balance.


SARHA implemented eClinicalWorks Scribe® in April 2019, giving providers new options for dictating Progress Notes. With Scribe, physicians are maintaining better eye contact with patients during visits, and completing Progress Notes more easily.


Since implementing Scribe, SARHA has been able to increase the number of patients they serve, thereby increasing revenue. Providers are responding to labs and phone calls more quickly and have more personal and family time.
