Is it okay to record my clinical conversations?

Yes, but it’s important to get proper consent and authorization to record a clinical conversation. 👍

Generally our customers say something along the lines of “Before we start, would you mind if I record this conversation for documentation purposes. I use AI software to help me get my medical records done quickly.”

NEW! We have a downloadable client consent form template and recording notice available for free at

If your client does not consent to their appointment being recorded, Scribenote’s other time saving automations can still come in handy. You can use Scribenote's Recap or Dictation to dictate your medical record after your appointment. This also applies to other situations where you may not want to record but want to streamline your note taking: for example, euthanasias or surgeries are very likely not appropriate times to record.
