We are your powerful ally in patient care
Fighting scope creep
Patients deserve care led by physicians—the most highly educated, trained and skilled health care professionals. The AMA vigorously defends the practice of medicine against scope of practice expansions that threaten patient safety.
Reducing physician burnout
Far too many American physicians experience burnout. The AMA develops resources that prioritize well-being and highlight workflow changes so physicians can focus on what matters-patient care.
Tackling prior authorization
Prior authorization is overused and existing processes present significant administrative and clinical concerns. The AMA’s approach to the prior authorization challenge includes research, practice resources and reform resources.
Leading the charge to reform Medicare pay
The AMA has challenged Congress to work on systemic reforms and make Medicare work better for you and your patients. Our work will continue, fighting tirelessly against future cuts—and against all barriers to patient care.
Telehealth is critical to the future of health care, which is why the AMA continues to lead the charge to aggressively expand telehealth policy, research and resources to ensure physician practice sustainability and fair payment.
