October 17, 2018 / Evan Sweeney

The nation’s largest provider group unveiled a new “playbook” Wednesday designed to help physicians implement a variety of new digital tools. The American Medical Association (AMA) released its Digital Health Implementation Playbook at the Connected Health Conference in Boston. The 12-step resource includes fundamental steps to digital health implementation along with more focused guidance for remote patient monitoring. "Implementing digital health technology has been a challenge for those without a clear course to success," AMA Chair-elect Jesse Ehrenfeld, M.D., said in a statement. "The AMA is committed to making technology an asset, not a burden, and the Playbook provides the medical community with widespread access to a proven path for implementing digitally enabled health and care.”
