One of the best reasons to cut the # of admin in half, cut those
salaries that are more than the average of the doctors on staff, dump
1/4 of the lawyers, and put that into doctors (some pay for on call
would be nice) and more nurses. Front line patient care.
The other is how to create a job where someone is taught enough medicine
or enough specialist medicine that a doctor could have someone that
thinks to do a lot of the paperwork for them. That includes some of the
insurance "I need more paperwork to approve" stuff. I dont see scribes
as being the answer because there may or may not be enough medical
knowledge to do that.
