Electronic Medical Records (EMRs)
EMR Support Services
AMA has engaged two part-time resources to provide EMR related support to physicians. This support focuses primarily on assisting with resolution of EMR challenges and issues, and provides guidance on privacy questions.
Although the support will be limited at this time, AMA feels that member advocacy in this area is needed as technology matures, and expectations for value from the EMR increase.
