Continuing Medical Education (CME)
HealthInsight New Mexico is an approved provider of CME credit accredited by the New Mexico Medical Society (NMMS), which is recognized by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). CME approval requires the program to be directed at physician education. CME consists of educational activities that serve to maintain, develop or increase the knowledge, skills and professional performance of the medical profession. The content of CME must be evidence-based and conform to generally accepted standards within the basic medical sciences.
Those interested in submitting a CME program application to HealthInsight New Mexico for consideration must complete the appropriate application packet for the type of program being offered: Live Course, Regularly Scheduled Series or Enduring Material (please see each section below for definitions).
The necessary forms are found in the CME application packets available from the HealthInsight New Mexico CME Coordinator (see below). The application packets contain instructions, forms to be completed for approval before the CME program is conducted for credit, template materials that can be customized for use during the program, and processes that should be followed to ensure that the program meets recognized standards of CME. Each presenter must complete Forms E and F (a copy of Form F: Faculty Disclosure must also be signed by each presenter).
If you have questions about CME process, or need application packets, please contact Courtney Overton, HealthInsight New Mexico CME coordinator, at (505) 314-9013 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If requesting an application, Please indicate if the event will have more than one presenter as well as which application is needed to be completed.
Please visit our CME Application Portal, currently under development. It will feature a new online application process in the near future.
A Live Course is an educational event/intervention for physicians, which is based upon identified needs, has a purpose or objectives, and is evaluated to assure that the needs are met.
Regularly Scheduled Series (RSS):
RSS events are those in which the same presentation is given in different settings on different dates, for instance, daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly CME activity that is primarily planned by and presented to the accredited provider's professional staff.
Enduring Materials are printed, recorded or computer-assisted instruction materials which may be used over time at various locations and which in themselves constitute a planned CME activity. Examples of such materials for independent physician learning include: programmed texts, audiotapes, videotapes and computer-assisted instructional materials, which are used alone or in combination with written materials. Books, journals (unless specifically designated) and manuals are not classified as enduring materials.
