New tech to support CME and MOC accreditation

CTI Meeting Technology, Chicago, IL, announces the integration of Maintenance of Certification (MOC) support for medical soceties wishing to enhance their educational curriculae by offering MOC assessments and points. 

Using cOASIS, CTI’s flagship content management and evaluation system, societies can now give their attendees the ability to build and document their portfolio of MOC points through session attendance.

While still somewhat controversial, health care organizations and certification boards are looking to these new standards, established in 2015 by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), as evidence that physicians are focused on continuing professional development, and are recognizing and rewarding active participants. With this, it’s no surprise that Board Certified physicians are evaluating their conference attendance and participation options with MOC collection in mind.

Using CTI’s solutions, pre- and post-session assessments are administered automatically, with individual and aggregate results reported to the society and the users taking the assessments. Users not achieving the designated pass rate can view detailed explanations of their incorrect answers and retake the test as defined by the society’s accreditation staff.

The Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) recently used CTI’s MOC functionality at its May 2016 HRS Scientific Sessions event in San Francisco and was able to award a total of 119 MOC points to 239 attendee physicians. More than 933 tests over 16 MOC sessions were administered in total, with an average of 2.6 points and 3.9 tests per physician.

In the software’s current version, society accreditation staff have the ability to create a variety of tests and questions, customized for each MOC session, including answers, rationale, and references.

Users have a single log-in to the overarching conference infrastructure, which includes MOC access, using a variety of unique data points, including: personal registration number, membership number, badge number, name, and email address.

Other user-focused features include:

  • Browse for MOC sessions
  • Take tests using variety of devices, including laptops, smartphones, and tablets
  • Easy and clear access to information about MOC process requirements, documentation/certificate, and testing protocols
  • Instant test result notification
  • Clear information about pass/fail, number of possible retakes available, and what to do when retake options are exhausted
  • Individual access to complete portfolio of test questions and correct answers, including print/pdf capability
  • Individualized MOC certification, including a formatted letter from the society on official letterhead, a sum of MOC credits earned, and a listing of MOC sessions for which the credit was earned
