I've been told that I can't write anything about this session without running it past the American Medical Association first, but from what I heard, most of the updates to the system have to do with protecting the AMA's intellectual property and streamlining the system. Look for some feedback and answers to attendees' burning question in the March/April issue of Medical Meetings. But most of what they talked about is covered in the new booklet that is now available from the AMA's Web site at no cost (the direct link to the download is here). They also said, and I think it's safe to say this much, that they'd be glad to answer any questions you might have. Just give them a call.
Phew, I'm done for the night! I'm looking forward to the marathon commercial support section tomorrow morning, especially since it's being moderated by Jobson Educational Group's Lawrence Sherman, moderator extraordinaire.
