The American Medical Association and 13 medical specialty societies, including AUA, have formed the Physicians Electronic Health Record Coalition to aid small- to medium-sized practices in selecting and using affordable electronic medical records software systems.

The coalition's goal is to improve the quality, safety, and efficiency of health care by facilitating adoption of affordable, standards-based electronic health records and other health information technology, according to a report in the AMA's American Medical News. It will educate physicians about the value and best use of electronic records and help focus the market on high-quality, affordable products, the report said.
