Chicago - Amagine, Inc., a subsidiary of the American Medical Association (AMA), today announced that its health information technology solutions platform, AMAGINETM, is available to physicians nationwide. The unique platform provides physicians with a single point of access to more than 20 health information technology (health IT) solutions, knowledge and communication tools and consulting resources to help improve practice efficiency and patient care. Subscriptions to the AMAGINETM platform vary in price and can start from $20 per month per physician for electronic prescribing solutions to $300 per physician per month for electronic medical records systems.
"Navigating the murky water of the health IT marketplace can be daunting and we are thrilled to be able to help physicians with the AMAGINETM physician platform," said Robert Musacchio, Ph.D, Senior Vice President, Business Product Solutions of Amagine, Inc. "The AMAGINETM platform delivers tailored health IT solutions to medical practices to help physicians determine their practice needs, select the right system and qualify for federal health IT incentives."
The AMAGINETM physician platform brings a plethora of health IT solutions to physicians, including three electronic medical record products, electronic prescribing software, claims management solutions, and clinical decision support and reference tools. Dr. First, Allscripts, DocSite, WellCentive, CareTracker, Quest Care360 and NextGen are just some of the top solutions providers available through the AMAGINETM platform. The AMAGINETM team continually reviews new services and solutions to ensure its products fit physicians' needs. AMAGINETM consultants provide physicians with a free practice assessment to determine their readiness to adopt health IT and then make tailored recommendations for the individual practice.
"The free AMAGINETM practice assessment is an invaluable resource for physician practices," said Mr. Musacchio. "By having physicians answer a few simple questions, AMAGINETM consultants are able to help them identify their unique needs and make specific recommendations on how they can best incorporate health IT into their practice."
In collaboration with the Michigan State Medical Society (MSMS), the AMAGINETM 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," said James A. Taylor, D.O., a family physician from Jackson, Michigan. "AMAGINETM 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."
