Medicus Megabytes: Link Roundup, 7/1/16

Connecting you to industry trends, tips, and news

Today, we link you to news about the American Medical Association (AMA) policy opposing Maintenance of Certification exams, a micro-survey that centers on physician burnout, six innovative products designed to enhance your travels, and more.

  • In addition to adopting a policy to help improve patient safety amid concerns regarding electronic health records, delegates at the 2016 AMA Annual Meeting passed a resolution to do away with physician recertification exams. As stated in a June 21, 2016, PR Newswire press release from the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, it reads, “Resolved, that our American Medical Association call for the immediate end of any mandatory, secured, recertifying examination by the American Board of Medical Specialties or other certifying organizations as part of the recertification process for all those specialties that still require a secure, high-stakes recertification examination.”
  • It might be too late to consider them for a Fourth of July weekend getaway, but the groundbreaking, tech-rich products highlighted in a FORTUNE magazine article last week could benefit your travels for locum tenens assignments and daily life. One of the items, the Venture Backpack, comes with its own Wi-Fi and is available in two sizes, both of which are approved by the Transportation Security Administration.

Have a safe and enjoyable Independence Day!
