Continuing Medical Education (CME) is meant for healthcare and medical professionals which allows them to enhance the requisite skillsets for practicing medicine. CME ensures medical professionals retain and enrich their professional expertise and knowledge to deliver the best healthcare to patients. CME supported by an LMS enables the learners to seamlessly avail the following benefits:
- Learning management system for practitioners and instructors who offer training to med-school students and hospital workforces.
- Learning courses and conferences aimed at enhancing existing skillsets, and updated standards and techniques.
- Clinical practice interdisciplinary topics (sociological and psychological) related courses and conferences for a better understanding of patient care.
A Healthcare LMS allows medical professionals across roles to earn and transfer credits earned in Continuing Medical Education (CME) using the LMS. They can maintain their licenses and continue their professional learning with course content created with the best authoring tools available. The authoring tools support AICC/SCORM/xAPI standards for progress tracking and course content performance for enhancing future learning experiences. The healthcare LMS delivers engaging and interactive CME courses to learners for their professional development and career growth. Reduced administrative burdens through automation save a lot of time and money. Whereas ACCME-compliant courses are created with ease.
Healthcare LMS is essential for anyone working in the healthcare industry. Being in the healthcare sector doctors, nurses, and allied workforces need to earn specific numbers of Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits depending on their role, licensing board, and the state they are working in. Medical-focused training is essential for doctors, nurses, and allied professionals in healthcare (lab technicians, physiotherapists, EMTs, chemo therapists, etc.). Even other administrative staff can use the LMS to learn the compliance policies of the organization.
PARS stands for Program and Activity Reporting System which is a reporting tool from ACCME. It is used to effectively track Continuing Medical Education (CME) learning data independently and also integrated with learning management systems. Licensing information, maintenance of certification, accreditations, course progress, etc. can be reported through PARS.
The Program and Activity Reporting System (PARS) enables healthcare providers to maintain proper reporting for all Continuing Medical Education (CME) learning activities. The healthcare provider is able to equip their workforces with the right skillsets, accreditations, and certifications by integrating PARS and healthcare LMS while delivering CME and CNE (Continuing Nursing Education). The healthcare professionals pursue CME and the healthcare providers meet FDA-approved Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) needs for submitting activity and learner data.
MapleLMS has exceptional integration capabilities with PARS for ensuring better reporting that synchronizes learning data and FDA-approved accreditations, certifications, FDA Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS), state licenses, identify and enhance improvement activities when they participate in Continuing Medical Education (CME). Moreover, with out-of-the-box Salesforce integration, the LMS allows learners to continue their learning using Single Sign-On (SSO). SSO allows them to access CME and other LMS learning data without changing the system.
Here are the major benefits of PARS and LMS integration:
- FDA-approved standards are maintained in the Continuing Medical Education (CME) and other healthcare learning programs.
- Accreditations, licenses, professional profile of healthcare workforce, learning progress, promotions, incentives, etc. get synchronized with the LMS and other connected systems.
- Hassle-free reporting for CME learning data.
- Improved reporting capabilities beyond PARS standard offerings.
Continuing Medical Education (CME) is crucial for medical professionals irrespective of their role. The most sought after features of an LMS that healthcare professionals look for are:
- The freedom to learn when they want at where they want using whatever device they want, without bothering about network connectivity.
- Continuing learning to maintain their CME or Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) credits.
- Upgrade their skills, standards, and techniques without spending a load of money.
