About MICIS: the Maine Independent Clinical Information Service
MICIS, the Maine Independent Clinical Information Service, is an innovative educational outreach program designed to provide independent clinical information to Maine physicians and other prescribers of medications. By aligning prescribing practices with the best scientific evidence on the treatment of common clinical problems, patient outcomes can be improved. MICIS began in 2009 and is a program of the Maine Medical Association (MMA).
MICIS is wholly funded through a contract with the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, Office of MaineCare Services. It receives no funding or other support from any other source, including the pharmaceutical industry. Educational outreach and academic detailing are provided to Maine healthcare providers free of charge.
