What Does It Mean To Earn Your Industry Certification As A Medical Scribe Professional?

A medical scribe is a physician collaborator who fulfills the primary clerical and non-medical functions of the busy physician or practitioner. The primary function of a medical scribe professional is the creation and maintenance of the patient’s medical record, which is created under the supervision of the attending physician. The scribe will document the patient’s story, the physician’s interaction with the patient, the procedures performed, the results of laboratory studies, and other pertinent information. Additional functions of a scribe may include ordering laboratory or radiology studies, assisting with the patient’s disposition, documenting consultations, and notifying the physician when important studies are completed. Medical scribes can also expect to assist providers with administrative tasks such as handling phone calls, retrieving lab results and other duties as needed to improve efficiency and productivity.


This industry certification ensures individuals can:

  • Gain knowledge of medical terminology, disease processes, anatomy and physiology
  • Comply with relevant laws and ethics, the Omnibus Rule, HIPAA , and HITECH
