XML File Export: XML stands for eXtensible Markup Language, a Web standard that makes it easier for computer systems to exchange data over the Internet. In order to collect information in a manner that is consistent with the data communications standards being adopted by medical education content providers, PARS includes a data upload tool that accepts XML files formatted to conform with the Medical Education Metrics (MEMS) XML standard created by Medbiquitous. Providers that have CME activity tracking systems that support exports to XML files may wish to explore this option for uploading data to ACCME. Some technical knowledge of your tracking system and XML may be required.
