The Office of CME and Lifelong Learning is partnering with HITS to evaluate if better alternatives exist to the current system used for managing Continuing Medical Education (CME) activities, presenters, and credits.
In the several years since MiCME was implemented, the market/industry has evolved and there are now mature applications specifically designed for CME.
The project team is currently assessing options to understand if there are applications that would fit our needs more completely and with less maintenance / customization. If a better alternative is identified, the project team will proceed with an implementation of a new system, with a target release in early 2024.
Phase 1, September 2022 - April 2023: Evaluation of alternative solutions
End-user engagement (survey and focus groups): October - November 2022
RFP Issue: December 2022
Demos: February 2023
Vendor selection: April 2023
Phase 2, TBD Spring 2023 - Winter 23/24: Contracting, implementation and testing
Phase 3, TBD Early 2024: Full scale release
