Amagine Inc. recently introduced the health index, a program which allows physicians to identify health IT priorities to begin working towards adoption.
Amagine Inc., a subsidiary of the American Medical Association (AMA), has introduced the health index. This interactive program allows physicians to identify their individual health IT priorities in just three minutes so they can begin working towards adoption.
The AMAGINE interactive health IT index allows the physician practice to determine the importance and urgency of different health IT tools are to their practice, including electronic medical records, e-prescribing, care coordination, lab ordering and results, claims processing, clinical knowledge tools, and secure communication. Results of the health IT index are immediately displayed in a graphic format for easy comparison with other practices.
“Determining which health IT solutions will benefit your practice and allow you to qualify for federal incentives can be time consuming,” said AMA Board Secretary Steven J. Stack, MD. “The health IT index helps physicians visualize their health IT priorities in minutes and compare those priorities with other physicians to begin crafting a plan to meet their goals.”
The AMAGINE physician platform provides a single point of access to a plethora of health IT solutions to physicians, including electronic medical record products, electronic prescribing software, claims management solutions, communication services, clinical decision support and reference tools, and full-text access to JAMA and the AMA’s nine Archives journals. The AMAGINE team continually reviews services and solutions to ensure its products fit physicians’ needs.
AMAGINE consultants also perform complimentary practice assessments to determine a medical practice’s readiness to adopt advanced health IT and make tailored recommendations. If you are in the early stages of health IT adoption, these consultants can provide you with a comprehensive assessment of your practice’s current health IT, develop a health IT strategy, inform your understanding of new health IT requirements, and take steps to obtain incentives with qualifying health IT solutions. For those physicians already on the road to health IT and EHR adoption, the AMAGINE consultants can help you identify modular solutions on the portal that may increase your chances of achieving meaningful use.
