Pri-Med Launches Personalized CME App for EHRs
Panel Insight™ Uses Patient Panel Data to Identify Care Gaps and Deliver Personalized CME
BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - September 10, 2015) - Pri-Med, a trusted source for continuing medical education (CME) to over 275,000 primary care providers (PCPs), today unveiled Panel Insight™, an Apple iPad app linked to electronic health record (EHR) data, enabling personalized CME for treating clinicians.
Panel Insight™ is the first in a series of data-informed tools Pri-Med is introducing as part of its Precision CME™ platform, designed to help PCPs improve patient health outcomes in a rapidly changing healthcare environment. Using proprietary Learning Analytics™ (informed by patient panel data), the Panel Insight™ app matches individual PCPs with personalized learning recommendations from Pri-Med's deep library of evidence-based medical knowledge. Users have access to a rich feature set available on the homepage, including CME refresher courses mapped against upcoming patient appointments, clinical risk assessments across therapeutic areas, a CME tracker to capture completed credits relative to credit objectives, and benchmark reports presented via intuitive visual data.
By transforming the traditional 'top-down' CME process into a 'bottom-up' learning model used operationally by PCPs to help care for patients with chronic disease, Pri-Med is redefining how CME is created and used by clinicians.
Primary care providers are under enormous time and cost pressures, and Pri-Med is committed to providing knowledge resources that help them provide the highest quality care while maximizing performance within their practice," said John Mooney, CEO of DBC Pri-Med LLC. "We believe that data-informed, personalized learning is the natural evolution of CME, and that Panel Insight delivers more relevant education, offers greater convenience, and optimizes provider learning time."
