AMA teams with UnitedHealth, Dell to push electronic health records

Chicago Tribune, March 4, 2010

The American Medical Association has formed a partnership with UnitedHealth Group's Ingenix subsidiary to "help physicians adopt and implement electronic health records," the two groups said in a statement provided to the Chicago Tribune. As part of the deal, the AMA will offer Ingenix CareTracker, a Web-based medical record system, through its Web site. The AMA said Ingenix will be part of a larger platform being created on its site to help physicians develop new technologies to enhance their practices and improve their day-to-day work environment. The group said multiple options will be given to doctors beyond the Ingenix technology, the Tribune reports.
