As the healthcare system undergoes massive transformation from volume- to value-based care, the CME/CE enterprise has never before been at such a critical junction in its evolution. We play pivotal roles in facilitating and sustaining this transformation. Moreover, with so much focus on justifying the value of our role in the healthcare system, we must collaborate to understand, explain and promote the benefits that our CME/CE educational activities provides.

Those who are part of the CME/CE enterprise understand the value of the education we develop, implement and evaluate. We see it clearly in the outcomes data we collect, and see how we’re improving knowledge and behavior. Yet our profession often struggles to translate activity-level successes into broad, value-based discussions with external stakeholders.
