AMA Invests $27M in Health2047 to Accelerate Value-Based Care

AMA’s investment will help Health2047 ramp up the development of technology that will confront some of healthcare’s greatest challenges, a familiar endeavor for both organizations.

In 2017, Health2047 and AMA tackled healthcare’s data access issues, seeking to revolutionize the way providers use data to make clinical decisions.

“Better access to data will empower physicians to practice at the top of their license. It will give them the time and the tools to be more productive,” Jack Stockert, MD, Managing Director of Strategy and Business Development at Health2047, told HealthITAnalytics.com at the time.

“Hopefully, they will also be happier and feel more fulfilled so that we can start to address the enormous toll that burnout is taking.”

In this next phase of innovation, Health2047 expects to do just that. The organization also plans to make strides in other key areas of the industry, including chronic disease reduction and payment reform, which Stockert explained is inextricably linked to data access.
