ACCME and Board of Medical Examiners in Tennessee Collaborate on Pilot Program to Facilitate Reporting of Physician Participation in CME

Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (03/28/18) Jovic, Megan Peters

The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) says it will work with the Board of Medical Examiners in Tennessee to launch a voluntary, year-long pilot program to allow CME providers to report physician participation in CME directly to the Board. This will streamline the process for physicians, who will not have to report their participation themselves. Twelve accredited CME providers have volunteered to participate in the pilot, which begins in June 2018. CME providers will collect participant data, including each physician's name, national provider identifier or Tennessee license number, and the day and month of the physician's birth. They will upload this data into the system they already use to report activities, the ACCME Program and Activity Reporting System. This information will then be shared proactively with the Board. ACCME and the Board are engaging in this collaboration in an effort to reduce the regulatory burdens on physician learners. ACCME aims to explore similar collaborations with other state boards if this pilot program is successful.
