It depends on the workflow whether that's efficient or not.
It doesn't seem efficient for the workflow you describe,

Yes. The focus of the client interface is currrently on
supporting the doctor *in the consultation*. Due to the
plugin architecture it is quite possible to make GNUmed
support batch scanning better than now but that's not how it
currently is ...

However ... :-)

Perhaps I have an option for you:

Do exactly as you describe above. But don't just sort by
patient but also by document (IOW all files for one document
into one directory). Then you can simply select the
corresponding patient in GNUmed and drag one of the document
directory onto the document import plugin to add all the
contained files to the page list ;-)  Maybe that's a tad
