Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q. How many times can I enter?
A. Only one video may be submitted per person. You may participate in additional videos submitted by other entrants.

Q. Can I collaborate on a video with a team of ScribeAmerica employees?
A.
Yes, a team may work together on a video but an individual from that team will submit the video.

Q: What are the limitations, if any?
A:
Unless you have received explicit written permission, entrants must be very careful not to identify their medical facility by name or by including signage, emblems, or logos in the video (except the ScribeAmerica name and logo). A suggestion is to refer to your facility by the name of the city it is in (New York City Scribes, Los Angeles Scribes, Chicago Scribes, etc.). Also, remember that you cannot film in the department because of HIPAA legal considerations and client policies/procedures.

Q. Can non-ScribeAmerica employees, such as providers, participate in my video?
A.
Yes, they may be featured or participate in your video but they are not eligible to compete for any prizes or submit entries. Any participation should be in accordance to applicable state and federal laws, and they must sign the release form.

Q. Do I need to receive any approval prior to submitting my entry?
A.
Yes, your medical facility's client representative (Medical Director, etc.) must view the video and sign the Video Video Contest Site Approval Form. This form must be included when you submit your entry.

Q. Are all the votes legitimate?
A.
We have monitoring software that alerts us to suspect voting activity. If votes are suspected to be fraudulent, they aren't counted in the contest. All voters must register to help prevent fraudulent voting and several filters are in place to recognize illegal votes, which will be eliminated throughout the contest. When a video receives 250 votes, the video will be entered into the Final Voting competition for a chance to win a $5,000 cash prize! (If five or more videos do not reach 250 votes, the top five videos with the highest number of votes will be entered into the Final Voting round.)
