The American Medical Association is leading meaningful innovation to enable a better health care system for patients, physicians and the country. The AMA is uniquely positioned to deliver results-focused strategies that enable physicians to enhance the delivery of care and improve the health of the nation.
Together, the AMA and the Colorado Medical Society have helped block health insurance mega-mergers, enact laws and develop best practices to combat the opioid epidemic and simplify administrative burden on physicians and practices. They also work closely on Medicaid expansion, helping more patients receive health care.
In addition to your CMS membership, we encourage Colorado physicians to join the AMA to strengthen organized medicine’s efforts within our state and across the nation. We are proud of the work and the outcomes we accomplish together on behalf of our profession. Your membership makes this work possible.
Your AMA membership benefits include:
Additionally, CMS delegates to the AMA House of Delegates serve as an important link to communications, policy and membership between the AMA and grass-roots physicians, and AMA members are eligible to apply for and attend AMPAC’s Campaign School and Candidate Workshop. AMPAC graduates have been elected to public offices across the country, including the U.S. Congress.
You will see the AMA dues included on the dues statements you receive from CMS. We urge you to continue your membership in the CMS and the AMA—and we make it easy for you to do that through CMS.

According to a 2014 survey of American Physicians, conducted by The Physicians Foundation and Merritt Hawkins, the amount of time spent on non-clinical paperwork throughout the year is equivalent to reducing the practicing physician population by as many as 161,000 physicians and shrinks the time available to see patients by more than eight million hours annually. Today, most hospital credentialing is decentralized and an independent process for each hospital and often from department to department within a hospital. Complying with all the requests for information costs the average physician practice in excess of $2,500 per year. Compliance suffers as well, since physicians are frustrated and inundated with multiple requests for the same information from a myriad of sources.
The Colorado Medical Society (CMS) has a solution unique to the health care industry and a game-changer on how practitioner data is gathered, maintained and distributed to the health care ecosystem and the general public. CMS Credentialing and Enrollment Services reduces unnecessary paperwork and increases practice revenue while improving data quality with reduced time, effort and expense. The service, a joint venture with 3WON, employs a proprietary SaaS based software known as ProStat, which is a physician-centric technology solution designed to aggregate, cleanse, monitor and validate data from the practitioner and multiple other data sources.
Using a single standardized platform for entering, maintaining, verifying and distributing data saves time and money for physicians and increases the quality and timeliness of the data. Using 3WON’s SmartForm, the practitioners enter, verify, edit and update their data. A data validation tool prevents incomplete forms from being submitted, which is the number one reason for delay in health plan enrollment. 3WON’s certified credentialing staff then reviews all data for completeness, accuracy and verification before sending to hospitals, health systems, public and private health plans and state and federal regulatory agencies.
