A number of Pennsylvania Medical Society (PAMED) members recently were informed by the State Board of Medicine that they were being audited to be sure they met state requirements for CME.
Thankfully, many of these members could turn to their records in PAMED’s CME Tracker to more efficiently reply to the audit. All PAMED members have free access to CME Tracker, the online management tool used by more than 3,000 PAMED members to easily organize CME, nearly eliminate credentialing headaches, and monitor compliance with Pennsylvania’s CME requirements for physicians.
Read what members are saying about PAMED’s useful CME tools:
“PAMED’s tracker system has given me the ability to keep track of CME for 10 physicians in an easy, straightforward, and uncomplicated way. One of the physicians was recently audited for CME compliance and Tracker made the job of collecting and accounting for two years worth of CME fast and easy. I also have called PAMED’s CME department on occasion with questions and they have always been helpful, friendly, and prompt. PAMED offers exceptional CME services. If you are not using them, you are missing out!”
—Rachel Kopp, Operations Administrator, Northeast Eye Institute
“I have been using CME Tracker for over five years. There is so much less in house paperwork. I use it for all of our physicians CME, both Category 1 and Category 2, and patient safety recording. I love the ability to email each of the physicians their summary, which I do every time I post something to their Tracker account so they know I have posted it for them. We were just recently audited for one of the physicians and having the Tracker report was a double check. I also find the automatic postings to their Tracker for any PAMED activity very helpful. There is no question when they have reached their requirements as it is accumulated throughout the year. A very helpful tool!”
—Terri Musselman, Practice Administrator, Upper Bucks Orthopedics and Sports Medicine
“I have been using Tracker for many years. Nothing could be easier than entering on at least a weekly if not daily basis. Why bother with a slip of paper to the office manager or staff when it is so easy to do so yourself. In addition, like documentation and coding, I believe that the physician as the source of such information is the proper one to record it. Recently the AUA started offering CME tracking, but I live and work in Pennsylvania and PAMED’s CME Tracker is aimed at Pennsylvania. Thank you all for being there.”
—John Franz, MD, a urologist in Pittsburgh
