MACRA Law, Effective 01/01/2017

Certified Medical Scribe Specialists are receiving increased 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) law begins to be implemented on Jan. 1, 2017.
