New AMA and MGMA Toolkit Assists in Practice Management System Software Selection

Another practical reason to belong to the AMA. SV

To assist physicians in selecting the most appropriate software to run their practices, the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) developed a new online toolkit, available today. Free to members of the AMA and the MGMA, the “Selecting a Practice Management System” toolkit is accessible on the AMA and MGMA Web sites.

The new toolkit will provide physician practices with:

  • a five-step guide to PMS software selection,
  • a comprehensive checklist of PMS software features and functionalities that physician practices can use to determine what their practice needs, and
  • a sample “request for proposal” that physician practices can employ in their communications with PMS software vendors.

In a later phase of the project, an online directory of PMS software vendors that includes self-reported PMS software features and functionalities will be added to the toolkit in the Winter of 2010.
