We are working on a feature that would allow for tagging course credits with a topic designation that could be tracked by the user in their transcript and reported to boards. ACCME is rolling out a pilot program that will automatically report learner activities to state medical boards, including such special topics.
For example, here in Pennsylvania physician are required to complete at least 12 hours of education on the topic of patient safety or risk management. Or in California, most physicians are required to take 12 hours of CME on pain management and the appropriate care and treatment of the terminally ill.
In nursing for example, APRNs must complete 25 CE hours of pharmacotherapeutics as part of the 75 CE hours requirement.
We want to make sure we implement this feature in a flexible way to meet the needs of all provider types and states. If you are interested in providing input to such a feature, I’d love to hear from you. Please message me here or contact us through the support desk.
