Doctor-Patient Rights Project (DPRP)
AMWA is a founding member of the Doctor-Patient Rights Project, a non-profit coalition of doctors, patients, caregivers, companies and advocates fighting to restore the fundamental practice of medicine and to ensure doctors, in partnership with their patients, drive patient care decisions.
The Doctor-Patient Rights Project was founded in 2017 in response to growing levels of interference into the practice of medicine and the appropriate treatment of patients.
The Doctor-Patient Rights Project is always looking for more physicians to share their experiences regarding how their practice and patients are being impacted by third party interference. These stories could include such issues as the administrative burden that insurance companies have imposed on physicians or patients who are unable to receive their prescribed treatments because of step therapy or other utilization management practices.
If you are interested in getting involved with DPRP, we encourage you to contact them by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by sharing your story at the DPRP website. You can also connect with DPRP on Twitter and Facebook.
