Educational Activities

Online and live educational activities focused on ongoing quality improvement and the delivery of quality care.

A key component of ongoing quality improvement includes learning and adopting new and innovative ways of providing quality care to our patients while, at the same time, maximizing the efficiency in how that care is delivered.  For providers in the Clinically Integrated Network, four hours of relevant CME credits are required per year to meet the “Quality Improvement” additional participation metrics requirement.  The following CME courses are examples of how physicians can meet this requirement and stay abreast of how other organizations across the country are making an impact in the midst of health care reform.
