Employee Certification for EHR Entry

Employee Certification for EHR Entry

September 2, 2021

Question:
I heard that a medical assistant who enters the patient’s medications into the electronic health record must be certified. Is this true?

Answer:
Actually, Medicare requires the MA to be certified to perform order entry. They do not have to be certified to enter patient information such as vital signs or medications.
