Signature Log Can Be the Key

Do you have questions regarding the signature log? A signature log is a typed listing of the provider(s) identifying their name with a corresponding handwritten signature. This may be an individual log or a group log. A signature log may be used to establish signature identity as needed throughout the medical record documentation. Please view MLN Matters® MLN MM6698 (PDF, 109 KB), Signature Guidelines for Medical Review Purposes, at CMS.gov for additional information about signature logs.
