Enhancements to AMA Physician and PA Profiles

A quick overview of changes coming in May 2022

Summary

The purchase of a new profile after April 28, 2022, will reveal new school data elements, new training statuses, and a new look to action reporting for AMA Physician Profiles, while the AMA PA Profile features a refreshed look and the addition of NPI number. Enhancements are not available on previously purchased profiles, except in instances where updates are made to the profile because of updates from discrepancy reporting or continuous monitoring.

What is Continuous Monitoring Service?

CM Service monitors changes to these sections of the profile: state and federal action notification, medical licensure, ABMS® board certification, National Provider Identifier, DEA registration, medical school, and postgraduate medical training. It can be added to the purchase of a physician initial or reappointment profile.
