Digital Health

Health care is evolving rapidly. The AMA, using the expertise of physicians and input from partners on the leading edge of health technology, has developed resources, toolkits and training to assist physicians in navigating this new, exciting and changing environment.

Together, we are helping physicians use advanced technologies that can reduce inefficiencies in health care delivery, improve patient access, lower costs and increase quality of care.

Meaningful Use

The Medicare and Medicaid electronic health record (EHR) incentive programs provide financial incentives for the meaningful use of certified EHR technology.

Act now to avoid a penalty on your future Medicare reimbursement and access resources from the AMA about meaningful use.

EHR usability

The more usable a product is, the better the user experience. For EHRs and other health information technology, usability is a key component in promoting adoption and continued use.

Learn more about key changes the AMA is advocating for to improve EHR usability.

Connected health

Connected health uses technology – specifically, telemedicine and mobile health – to maximize health care resources and provide increased, flexible opportunities for patients to engage with clinicians and better self-manage their care.

Health Information Exchanges (HIEs)

Health information exchanges support the sharing of health information among physicians and hospitals to improve health and care in communities around the nation.
