Amagine Inc., a subsidiary of the Chicago-based American Medical Association (AMA), today announced that its health information technology solutions platform, AMAGINE, is available to physicians nationwide. The unique platform provides physicians with a single point of access to more than 20 health information technology (health IT) solutions, knowledge and communication tools and consulting resources to help improve practice efficiency and patient care. Subscriptions to the AMAGINE platform vary in price and can start from $20 per month per physician for electronic prescribing solutions to $300 per physician per month for electronic medical records systems.

The AMAGINE physician platform brings a plethora of health IT solutions to physicians, including three electronic medical record products, electronic prescribing software, claims management solutions, and clinical decision support and reference tools. Dr. First, Allscripts, DocSite, WellCentive, CareTracker, Quest Care360 and NextGen are just some of the top solutions providers available through the AMAGINE™ platform. The AMAGINE team continually reviews new services and solutions to ensure its products fit physicians’ needs. AMAGINE consultants provide physicians with a free practice assessment to determine their readiness to adopt health IT and then make tailored recommendations for the individual practice.

In collaboration with the Michigan State Medical Society (MSMS), the AMAGINE platform has been pilot tested by Michigan physicians since 2009.
