PEPID Offers Point-of-Care Continuing Medical Education
Healthcare professionals can learn while at the bedside, increasing impact of education
March 26, 2015 —PEPID, the leading clinical decision support provider, has announced it will provide healthcare professionals the ability to earn continuing medical education (CME) credit at the point of care.
“I’m proud to offer healthcare professionals the ability to earn CME credits as part of their everyday workflow,” says PEPID President, John Wagner. “We’ve made it easier than ever for busy healthcare professionals to stay current with the latest research and meet CME requirements while they practice.”
Users of the leading PEPID emergency medicine references will earn point-of-care CME credit as they search for information on diagnoses, treatment and prevention while working directly with patients. This availability will give healthcare professionals an easy way to apply the latest medical and pharmaceutical research directly into their practice, in order to provide better patient care and improve outcomes.
After each search, or as time permits, healthcare professionals can answer brief questions directly from their mobile device or computer and submit their responses for CME credit. Each search is eligible for 0.5 credits of AMA PRA Category 1TM credit.
PEPID and its CME activities are embedded directly into physician workflow, and available on any mobile device, including iPhone, iPad, Android, Nook, Kindle Fire or BlackBerry devices, as well as via any computer with internet connectivity.
PEPID’s reputable clinical and pharmacological content has been trusted for more than 20 years and is designed to support clinicians through every stage of the decision support process, increasing safety and accuracy through better-informed patient care, and this latest offering adds to the robust content and tools available.
