The Chicago-based American Medical Association (AMA) recently invited its member physicians to share insights and opinions on the latest EHR technology through a joint survey with AmericanEHR Partners, which is a physician resource that offers access to ratings and information about EHR systems and vendors.  According to AMA, findings from this member survey are intended to support physicians in the selection and use of EHRs and improve the value of this technology for both physicians and patients.

“Advances in EHR systems must accommodate a variety of physician practices if the technology is to meet its full potential to streamline workflow and help deliver better care to patients,” AMA President Jeremy A. Lazarus, M.D. said in a statement “Survey input from physicians will help guide the AMA and AmericanEHR Partners in our shared commitment to foster advances that help physicians use health IT to successfully improve health care delivery.”
