Who are considered prohibited CC recipients

Standard distribution of transcribed documents is typically to the author, PCP, and at some sites also the referring provider.  Excelleris (document distribution vendor) will distribute copies of the document after it has been finalized/signed to clinical care providers or institutions/facilities (CC recipients) as requested by the author at the time of telephone dictation or added at time of FESR creation, providing that the author clearly identifies the CC recipient.
