[Sticky] Develop your team of Certified Medical Scribes.
The role of a scribe in the practice must be clearly defined and communicated, with documented job descriptions and set policies and procedures, to optimize their use and minimize challenges. It is also important to obtain a signed agreement between the provider and the scribe delineating expectations and accountability. Make sure that your team of scribes have cordial relationship with one another and look out for one another. This is essential for a team's core strength. Make sure they are comfortable with you so they would be free to share any information with you. There will come a day when they will be in an aesthetic clinic and then they need to make sure that make good decisions and have teams of their own. Let go of any mistakes that are committed by your scribes. However, make sure that they understand how shameful it is to commit a mistake twice.
If there were no humor, life would be tragic
