The American Medical Association (AMA) announced today that more than 60 organizations have pledged their formal support to an AMA effort designed to help physicians better use health insurer-provided data reports as tools to enhance the quality and value of patient care.

To help create data reports that physicians can easily understand and use, the AMA created the “Guidelines for Reporting Physician Data” with input from public and private health insurers, state and specialty medical societies, health standard organizations, and employer and consumer coalitions. The new guidelines provide a roadmap for improving the usefulness of physician data reports by encouraging greater format standardization, process transparency and level of detail.

Among the organizations that support the use of the AMA’s Guidelines for Reporting Physician Data include Cigna, Midwest Business Group on Health, National Committee on Quality Assurance and UnitedHealth Group.
