AT&T Healthcare Community Online Physician Portal
The goal behind driving greater adoption and use of healthcare information technology is to create a system of care that is more efficient, higher quality, safer for patients — and delivered at less cost. Vetting and implementing health IT is challenging. Yet the benefits you reap can help your practice focus on what is most important: patient care. By choosing and implementing the right health IT solutions, your practice can improve operational efficiencies, reduce paper workflows, increase patient and provider satisfaction, and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
In April 2012, AT&T and the American Medical Association formed a strategic alliance that can enable thousands of physicians, physician organizations and medical societies nationwide to connect and collaborate with hospitals, payers and patients to help enhance patient care and reduce costs.
