AMA opens doors for health tech innovators with new CPT Developer Program

Jan. 20, 2022

The American Medical Association (AMA) announced the launch of a new developer program to help creators of health technology and services easily leverage AMA-published content from Current Procedural Terminology (CPT), a medical terminology for describing and coding healthcare procedures and services.

The CPT Developer Program is devoted to the needs of developers and facilitates access to the AMA’s expertise, content, resources in medical terminology and coding to those with pioneering ideas at the crucial development stage of innovation. Key features offered at no fee to developers who register for CPT Development Program include:

  • CPT Development License Allows the developer community royalty-free access to CPT content to build and test innovations during the product development stage. The developer license is valid for 12-months with an annual renewal required.
  • AMA Intelligent Platform This central interface allows users to license, access and manage the latest CPT content with modern delivery options including APIs, Web apps and data files.
  • Developer Engagement AMA offers education and information opportunities designed to foster collaboration and co-creation with application developers. Developers receive regular updates on CPT, connect with fellow developers in feedback forums, and attend the AMA’s first developer symposium in Nov. 2022.
