  Doctors Helping Doctors Transform Health Care


Overview


Through this non-profit, collaborative, social media effort, physicians are sharing their experiences and insights—through videos, audio programs, stories and blog posts—about why they decided to adopt health IT, the initial challenges they faced and the strategies they used to overcome them, the impact on their practices or organizations, and their lessons learned—to support other physicians as they make the transition to a health IT-enabled health care system that delivers better health and health care.


Doctors Helping Doctors engages non-profit, clinician-led organizations and medical societies to provide input, identify physician leaders who have successfully transformed care through health IT, and highlight resources that will be helpful to physicians. Collaborators include the American College of Cardiology, the American College of Physicians, the American Osteopathic Association, the American Society of Clinical Oncology, and the Association of Medical Directors of Information Systems (AMDIS). The American Academy of Family Physicians and the American Medical Association also serve in advisory roles.
