Standardizing Physician-CMSS Teams to Wellness – MACRA
Medical scribes are now starting to receive increasing attention in the healthcare industry, as many more practitioners are turning to them with the now commonplace use of EMRs/EHRs. Certified Medical Scribe Specialists help practitioners stay focused on providing quality patient care, while relieving practitioners from the burden of charting patient encounters that require ever more detailed documentation. Their services are becoming even more valuable now as the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) begins to be implemented on Jan. 1, 2017. The American College of Medical Scribe Specialists has created an in-depth article titled, “Standardizing Physician-CMSS Teams to Wellness – MACRA,” to answer key questions clinicians are now asking about the use of certified scribes. For the full story, click here.
ACMSS spoke as a panelist on healthcare compliance through credentialing pathways with Physicians, in meeting CEHRT MU Personnel attestations through Certified Medical Scribe Specialists (CMSS), creating sustainable wellness and outcomes across healthcare.
