eHealth

eHealth is the use of electronic processes and communications to enable better patient care.

For many years eHealth was primarily focused on digitizing patient records in the community and hospital facilities. It has evolved rapidly and now encompasses all aspects of the use of information technology solutions to enhance the delivery of health care.

The AMA supports the eHealth initiatives and technology that improve patient care and is committed to providing members with current information and guidance on eHealth initiatives and technologies, including timelines, long term plans, impact and expectations.

The AMA advances patient-centered, quality care by advocating for and supporting physician leadership and wellness.
