Earlier this year, the American Medical Association (“AMA”) established a new online learning center to provide physicians with the information and tools that they need to make well-informed decisions about electronic prescribing (“ePrescribing”). Now, the AMA has introduced additional enhanced tools for ePrescribing.
The learning center offers many tools and resources to help physicians, including calculators to estimate time savings and eligibility for incentive payments as well as planning devices to help assess practice readiness for and ease implementation of new technologies. Examples of some of the new tools include:
- A system finder tool that picks three systems for a user based on the user’s response to a brief survey
- Side-by-side comparisons of up to three sPrescribing vendors at one time
- The ability to view vendor feedback and ratings from other users, and the ability to provide one’s own feedback
- Automated capability to contact a vendor when a decision is reached
The site and its resources can be accessed by physicians and others at http://www.ama-assn.org/ama/pub/eprescribing/home.shtml.
