The Association of Medical Directors of Information Systems has teamed with the Chan Soon-Shiong Family Foundation, the Optum Institute for Sustainable Health and Siemens Healthcare to launch Doctors Helping Doctors Transform Health Care, a collaborative, not-for-profit social-media initiative aimed at physicians.
The project's goal is to allow physicians to share information about quality, patient safety and efficiency through the greater use of health information technology.
"Our goal is to help other doctors navigate how to use health IT to make care better, safer and more effective," said Dr. Peter Basch, an AMDIS member and a founding member and board chairman of the new organization, in a news release. "With meaningful-useincentives now being offered by federal and state programs to support the use of health IT, we have the opportunity to leverage this significant investment to transform healthcare."
