The American College of Medical Scribe Specialists (ACMSS), a non-profit 501(c)(6) corporation, is devoted to ensuring the highest standards of training, education, performance, and certification of medical scribes. We represent the highest professional quality of medical scribes in the industry for medical record documentation throughout healthcare. Employers looking for medical scribes who have achieved the highest professional distinction in the medical scribe industry seek ACMSS certification. Only those medical scribes who have passed ACMSS’s Medical Scribe Certification & Aptitude Test (MSCAT) are certified. The ACMSS offers the Certified Medical Scribe Apprentice (CMSA) and Certified Medical Scribe Specialist (CMSS) pathways.

With the new CMS guidelines for CPOE, it is now very important that your scribes are credentialed and certified, so they may enter CPOE data. It will also help your company qualify towards meeting the meaningful use (MU) measures and avoid the increasing penalties by year for not adopting the new EHR Initiative.

 

Through ACMSS, your scribes can certify today in real time by taking the Medical Scribe Certification & Aptitude Test (MSCAT) and enter orders as a credentialed and Certified Medical Scribe Specialist (CMSS). ACMSS offers membership benefits that provide three certification attempts per user, versus one, in addition to store and volume purchase discounts for facilities with 5+ scribe members needing certification. Please see the Bundle Calculator for your company discount.  The discount is applied to the cart at checkout. We currently have a general exam as well as several specialty ones
