To setup provider signature for EMR notes


Step 1: Scan Signature Into Workstation

Have provider sign a blank sheet of white paper with a felt tip pen (or any pen that provides a prominent line such as a fine tip sharpie or gel pen).  It is suggested to sign a solid white sheet of copier/printer paper as textured paper (such as linen paper) does not generate favorable results. Scan signature into computer utilizing a scanner.  Save image as a *.BMP file or *.JPG file.  Make note of the location of where the signature is saved on the hard drive.
DO NOT save scanned signature as a Word document or PDF document as this cannot be utilized as a signature in EMR Notes.
