Reminders for Accredited Providers
ACCME IMPLEMENTS NEW, TIERED STRUCTURE FOR ANNUAL ACCREDITATION FEE
Beginning in 2020 we are implementing a new, tiered structure for the annual accreditation fee paid by ACCME-accredited providers. We are moving to a tiered fee structure in response to suggestions from the accredited provider community and to better distribute the responsibility for sustaining our system more fairly among accredited programs of different sizes. A tiered fee structure will enable us to improve services for you, better help you meet the needs of your learners, and ensure that accredited CME continues to be valued and effective in the rapidly evolving healthcare environment.
We sent a letter via email to the primary contact of all ACCME-accredited providers on June 4 describing the new fee structure and each organization’s tier placement and fee. If you did not receive this email or you have questions, please contact us at email@example.com.

Our Story of the Month
THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO PRITZKER SCHOOL OF MEDICINE
This month’s Our Stories: Exemplary Practices, features The University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. Tom Weber, EdM, Associate Director, Center for Continuing Medical Education, shares their efforts to improve access to data.
“Studies have shown that by analyzing complex data sets, clinicians can identify patterns that can improve patient care, yet institutional surveys showed a lack of clinician knowledge regarding access to quality data. In response, our team collaborated with the Center for Quality to develop educational sessions that increase clinicians’ engagement with big data.”
