The AMA says “Power to the Patient” … Finally!

The American Medical Association Recognizes Shared Decision Making

By Staff Reporters

Some readers of the ME-P may be surprised to learn that the American Medical Association [AMA] now “recognizes” shared decision making.  A document recommending precisely that is available for your reading pleasure here.

Assessment

The AMA also recognizes that shared decision making can make the physician-patient relationship stronger, opposes any effort to link it to insurance coverage and supports more pilot programs.

Of course, with AMA influence waning at less than 18% of allopathic members, and health 2.0 strategic initiatives rising along with a plethora of other related medical professionals, was there even a choice? 

As one doctor we interviewed said:Congratulations AMA for recognizing the obvious and abandoning your command-control philosophy … and welcome to Y 2012.”
