Scribe Requirements for 2017
Question: Is it true that our scribes no longer need to be certified?
Answer: Under the former meaningful use program, scribes required certification to enter any written order into the electronic health records. This ruling changed under the current MIPS program. While some practices see advantages to having certified scribes, CMS no longer requires it.
