A unit of United Health Group has partnered with The American Medical Association to help physicians adopt and implement electronic health records.
Ingenix, Eden Prairie, Min., and the AMA, Chicago, Ill., are working together to help physicians use health IT systems to enhance patient care, simplify administration and improve clinical efficiency.
As part of this collaboration, the AMA has selected Ingenix CareTracker as the first electronic health records (EHR) system offered through the AMA’s new online health information solutions platform for physicians. The AMA platform will enable physicians to assess and meet clinical and practice needs, providing them with access to information, products and services with a single, secure sign-on.
The platform, which will launch nationwide later this year, is being beta tested in Michigan in collaboration with the Michigan State Medical Society, Lansing, Mich.
