Your physician colleagues in Michigan may be able to offer insights into American Medical Association subsidiary Amagine Inc.’s health information technology (IT) platform, Amagine, which now is available to physicians nationwide.

The platform offers doctors a single point of access to more than 20 health IT offerings, knowledge, and communication tools and consulting resources designed to help improve practice efficiency and patient care. The platform includes three electronic health record (EHR) products, e-prescribing software, claims management solutions, and clinical decision support and reference tools. Also, consultants can provide doctors with a free practice assessment to determine their readiness to adopt health IT and then make tailored recommendations for individual practices.

In collaboration with the Michigan State Medical Society, the platform has been pilot-tested by Michigan physicians since 2009.

“My experience with health IT solutions has been limited, but I knew that it was important for my practice to enter the electronic age,” says James A. Taylor, DO, a family physician from Jackson, Michigan. “Amagine made it easy to step into the electronic world. Through a single sign-on, I can access many types of useful health IT solutions that enable me to collect data and demonstrate quality care.”

Subscriptions to the platform range from $20 per month per physician for e-prescribing solutions to $300 per doctor per month for EHR systems.
