Literature Requirements Workgroup

The AMA CPT Editorial Panel is now accepting requests for participation in the Literature Requirements Workgroup (LRW).

The Workgroup seeks to update literature requirements for code change proposals. It solicits input from individuals who can provide technical background information regarding relevant literature standards to assure accurate input for the maintenance of the CPT code set. Participation in this workgroup is limited to individuals who can demonstrate expertise relevant to the current literature standards.

Those interested in participating should:

  1. Submit your name and your organization’s name to the Literature Requirements Workgroup staff with a request to participate in this workgroup.
  2. In the submission, include a short explanation that demonstrates your expertise relevant to the current literature standards. The current standards for literature are included within the code change application document (see questions 25a and 25b).

Please note that participation is not intended to advance the proprietary interests of the companies or organizations that participate.

Upon receipt of notifications and identification by the workgroup chairs and AMA staff of the appropriate subject matter experts, you will be notified via email by AMA staff.

At the completion of the workgroup efforts, a recommendation will be submitted via Code Change Application to the CPT Editorial Panel for consideration at a future meeting.

If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact AMA Staff.
