Use of E-Signatures on Facility Rosters!

The Arkansas State Medical Board’s (ASMB) Centralized Credentials Verification Service (CCVS) is pleased to add Rosters to the list of documents where e-signatures are accepted. If e-signatures are utilized, there must be an e-signature identifier visible on the document. The identifier is necessary for the CCVS and customer organizations to meet regulatory and certification requirements.  Examples of identifiers would be the VeriDoc stamp near the signature, security e-signature code at the bottom, a statement that it was digitally signed by the physician or by the submitting person for rosters.  Documents that just have names typed in with a font change do not meet this criteria.  The CCVS already accepts Attestations and Organization Authorization and Releases if they meet the e-signature identifier requirement.
