New System Streamlines CME Credit Approval Process

THURSDAY, Oct. 12, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) and the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) have launched a new performance improvement activity credit reporting process called the AAFP Credit System, according to an article published by the AAFP.

To streamline the overall credit approval process, the AAFP and ABFM developed a system that allows continuing medical education (CME) providers to apply for AAFP Performance Improvement CME Credit and ABFM Certification Activity points for their performance improvement activities through the AAFP Credit System using a single application process.

CME providers who apply for credit using the new process only pay one fee and do not have to complete two applications. In addition, for AAFP members reporting eligible CME credit for a performance improvement activity, the ABFM will automatically be notified that the performance improvement certification activity has been completed.

"Thanks to a collaborative effort by the AAFP and the ABFM, Academy members can now benefit from a virtually seamless credit-reporting process for their performance improvement activities," according to the article.
