Physician Leadership Forum – Continuing Medical Education as a Strategic Resource

With input from AHA members, the Physician Leadership Forum examined the value of CME to hospitals as a strategic resource for physician-hospital alignment. “Continuing Medical Education as a Strategic Resource” provides an assessment of the value of CME, recommends ways to improve value, and identifies case examples of hospitals that are using CME to improve performance and align the delivery system.The report recommends greater use of performance-based CME, more streamlined accreditation standards, broader sharing of best practices, increased communication between CME departments and senior leadership, and greater involvement of physician leaders as champions in CME as ways to improve the use of CME as a strategic resource for hospitals.
