Wolters Kluwer Helps Clinicians Stay UpToDate with Continuing Education Anytime, Anywhere with Mobile CE/CME Credit Redemption

Sponsored by Businesswire

Kluwer, Health
announced today that clinicians can now manage
and redeem their Continuing Medical Education (CME)
Continuing Education (CE) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
credits directly on the UpToDate® mobile app and mobile web.
Additionally, ABIM-certified physicians can submit CME credits earned
using UpToDate to fulfill select Maintenance of Certification (MOC)
requirements from the UpToDate mobile app and mobile web.

“Redeeming CME on the go using a smartphone or tablet gives clinicians’
back valuable time to spend with their patients,” said Priti Shah, Vice
President, Products and Solutions, Clinical Effectiveness, at Wolters
Kluwer, Health. “We are committed to reducing the variability that
stands in the way of effective care by reinforcing the latest evidence
to improve patient outcomes.”

With an unabated flow of new medical research, healthcare professionals
are challenged to keep up with new evidence and to identify relevant
research that changes clinical practice. Researchers at Stanford
estimate that about 1.47
million new biomedical research papers will be published in 2019
with an annual growth rate of about 5 percent.

To stay current, CME/CE/CPD is a key component of clinicians’
professional development and directly impacts their practice of
medicine. From Australia to the United Arab Emirates, UpToDate is accredited
and recognized
as a continuing education resource by colleges,
associations, and authorities from around the world. Over 20
organizations in the US and 35 internationally recognize CME earned in
UpToDate. In 2018 alone, nearly 200,000 clinicians have taken advantage
of UpToDate CME to fulfill their professional development requirements.
