1.  Scribe/Transcriptionist traditional typing in Epic EHR

Hello All,

I have a conundrum and would like input from any and all.  I have been tasked to be an assistant (transcriptionist) to a provider for his documentation as Dragon is not productive.  The provider wishes to dictate and me traditional type into Epic.  I was ready to begin the process though reached a road block with coding/billing.  As a scribe, I have to place an attestation phrase at the end of the report which states my role as a scribe.

As a transcriptionist, I do not know if I need to place an attestation phrase at the end of the report, and am I able to use my template which I use as a scribe.

Thanks much,
Beth
