ABIM physicians can submit CME directly towards MOC from their mobile devices
April 10, 2019 —Wolters Kluwer, Health announced today that clinicians can now manage and redeem their Continuing Medical Education (CME), Continuing Education (CE) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits directly on the UpToDate® mobile app and mobile web. Additionally, ABIM-certified physicians can submit CME credits earned using UpToDate to fulfill select Maintenance of Certification (MOC) requirements from the UpToDate mobile app and mobile web.
"Redeeming CME on the go using a smartphone or tablet gives clinicians' back valuable time to spend with their patients," said Priti Shah, Vice President, Products and Solutions, Clinical Effectiveness, at Wolters Kluwer, Health. "We are committed to reducing the variability that stands in the way of effective care by reinforcing the latest evidence to improve patient outcomes."
With an unabated flow of new medical research, healthcare professionals are challenged to keep up with new evidence and to identify relevant research that changes clinical practice. Researchers at Stanford estimate that about 1.47 million new biomedical research papers will be published in 2019, with an annual growth rate of about 5 percent.
To stay current, CME/CE/CPD is a key component of clinicians' professional development and directly impacts their practice of medicine. From Australia to the United Arab Emirates, UpToDate is accredited and recognized as a continuing education resource by colleges, associations, and authorities from around the world. Over 20 organizations in the US and 35 internationally recognize CME earned in UpToDate. In 2018 alone, nearly 200,000 clinicians have taken advantage of UpToDate CME to fulfill their professional development requirements.
