2010 Annual Report Addendum - Introduction

Published Date: 
September 16, 2011

Murray Kopelow, MD, MS(Comm), FRCRP, ACCME President and Chief Executive Officer, introduces the ACCME's addendum to the 2010 Annual Report Data, "Analysis of Commercial Support Distribution and Long-Term CME Trends."

The addendum builds on the information included in the previously published annual reports, from 1998–2010, to provide long-term analysis of trends. In addition, the addendum includes new data, made possible because of the Program and Activity Reporting System (PARS), a Web-based portal designed to centralize and streamline the collection, management, and analysis of program and activity data from ACCME-accredited CME providers. The structure of PARS enabled the ACCME to present an overview and analysis of commercial support distribution across the national CME enterprise.
