Med Rec Technicians

Hello all. I wondered if you could share the following for those who utilize technicians for med rec:
1. How many med rec techs do you have?
2. Do they primarily serve the ED/ a particular unit?
3. Who supervises these technicians> another technician/ pharmacist? Is this supervision direct or indirect?
4. What rights or capabilities do your techs have in your EMR> can they add, delete, and/or adjust anything in the med rec area of the chart or have limited function? Please elaborate as able.

Thanks for your feedback!
