Pri-Med Introduces New Online Platform – Personalization Drives Patient-Centered CME
New Learning Portal Uses Data to Help Providers Maximize Time Spent on CME
BOSTON, MA, September 10, 2015 -- Pri-Med, a trusted source for professional medical education to over 275,000 clinicians since 1995, today introduced the new Pri-Med Online (www.pri-med.com), a 24/7 medical knowledge resource for clinicians. Accessible via desktop or mobile devices, Pri-Med Online uses advanced analytics to match registered users with recommended educational content based upon their clinical practice, preferences and demonstrated (system) behavior.
Pri-Med Online is the second in a series of data-infused learning resources Pri-Med is introducing as a part of its Precision CME™ platform. The goal is to help providers improve patient outcomes by targeting their continuing medical education (CME) activities on therapeutic areas that represent a need within their patient populations.
The new Pri-Med Online dashboard tracks both live conference and online CME course completions, progress toward annual CME requirements, and includes a tracker for credits completed outside of Pri-Med. Users can also search Pri-Med's vast library of medical knowledge using multiple filters and sub-filters, including by educational institution, faculty member, and more than 20 therapeutic areas. Disqus technology enables learners to have a meaningful real-time dialogue with faculty and peers, replicating the interactivity of a live learning experience.
"Historically, Pri-Med has been known for its world-class educational conferences across the U.S. and exceptionally loyal provider-learners," said John Sheehan, President and COO, DBC Pri-Med, LLC. "Our online community is similarly substantial, with nearly 500,000 unique annual visitors and over 1000 CME completions per activity, on average. Pri-Med Online personalized learning technology allows providers to optimize their learning time, and is a natural extension to Pri-Med's live conference programs. Additionally, Accountable Care Organization providers will have access to Pri-Med Online personalized learning as part of the Precision CME platform, representing a new opportunity for Pri-Med to help clinicians provide the highest quality care for their patients."
