2 LMS Features Every CME Manager Needs

Sustaining CME compliance is a full time job.

Whether it’s maintaining data integrity, ensuring activity validation, or reporting on certification, adhering to compliance requirements fuels a significant portion of your day-to-day work as a CME Manager.

A robust LMS is critical for facilitating compliance through all stages of learner certification. The best learning management systems have advanced features specifically intended to simplify and streamline the process.

CME Manager’s Top Two Critical LMS Features for CME Compliance

Continuing medical education compliance is multifaceted and requires a diligent CME manager and a strong LMS. Two must-have features your LMS needs to keep you on top of CME compliance are integrated PARS reporting and automated databases.

Here’s why both of these LMS features should be utilized by every CME manager for CME compliance:

  • PARS-compliant reports that are integrated with all ACCME web services, including ABA, ABIM, ABP MOC 2 programs, ensure that activities and credits are tracked and reported to ACCME promptly. This automation should also conduct detailed analysis on website traffic, course participation, and test results and then create custom reports you can export to third party applications. Compliance is easier and more secure when these reports are generated automatically and sent directly to the necessary third parties.
  • Automated database maintenance ensures data integrity and is particularly crucial to avoid data errors that may compromise compliance. Incorrect or missing data compromises CME compliance; it is critical to take proactive steps to ensure data quality. Your LMS should help you by automating as much of the process as possible.
