Database topics included Medical News, Drug Therapy and Evaluation, EMPIRES Clinical Literature, and Coding and Nomenclature. AMA/NET also provided electronic mail, bulletin boards, direct access to governmental organizations such as the CDC, and the ability to order articles. Computer-based courses developed at Massachusetts General Hospital were also offered through the service. In 1985, AMA/NET was offered on a trial basis in Japan through a partnership with Mitsubishi Corporation.
