Achieving ACO goals: Paper describes health IT needs
A new white paper explores how health information technology (IT) infrastructure should be designed to help physicians succeed in accountable care organizations (ACO).
Created by AT&T, the paper discusses such technologies as patient registries, care management tools, health information exchanges and performance analytical tools. The paper also explains how such infrastructure can help ACOs achieve their goals of lowering costs, increasing access to care and enhancing quality.
The AMA and AT&T have formed a strategic alliance to form an advanced collaborative care and information exchange platform by integrating the AMA's AMAGINE™ physician community portal with AT&T Healthcare Community Online. Learn more about this strategic alliance.

For example, physicians in specialized practices have access to higher benefit limits available only through their local PFP member. And physicians with outstanding medical school loans can consider a lump-sum product built specifically for paying off debt.
