How do I report participant completion data for regularly scheduled series such as grand rounds or tumor board conferences?

Per ACCME data reporting instructions, accredited providers should report multi-session regularly scheduled series (RSS) for example, grand rounds, tumor boards, and morbidity and mortality conferences as a single activity in the Program and Activity Reporting System (PARS). If the entire RSS or a portion of the series meets the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) requirements, it can be registered for Maintenance of Certification (MOC). When completing the fields for ABIM MOC program in PARS, provide the total number of MOC points that are available to the participants who attend the entire series.

Note: If not all of the RSS sessions meet the ABIM requirements, report the total number of MOC points for the sessions that do meet ABIM requirements. For example, if the RSS meets for 1 hour monthly (12 hours total for the year), but only 5 of the sessions meet ABIM MOC requirements, you would report 12 hours of instruction for the activity but enter 5 points in the data field asking for the number of MOC points.
