Performance Improvement CME

Performance Improvement Continuing Medical Education or PI CME is a certified CME activity in which an accredited CME provider structures a long-term three-stage process by which a physician or group of physicians learn about specific performance measures, assess their practice using the selected performance measures, implement interventions to improve performance related to these measures over a useful interval of time, and then reassess their practice using the same performance measures.

To be certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™, a PI CME activity must:

  • Meet all AMA core requirements for certifying an activity.
  • Have an oversight mechanism that assures content integrity of the selected performance measures. These measures must be evidence based and well designed.
  • Provide clear instructions to the physicians that define the educational process of the PI CME activity.
  • Provide adequate background information so that physicians can identify and understand the performance measures that will guide their PI CME activity, and the evidence base behind those measures.
  • Validate the depth of physician participation by a review of submitted PI CME activity documentation
  • Consist of the following three stages:

State A: Learning from current practice performance assessment

State B: Learning from the application of PI to patient care

State C: Learning from the evaluation of the PI CME effort
