Weekly Compliance Tips

For the activities I have registered for MOC via PARS, what information do I need to collect about each participating learner?

Providers should collect the following information for each learner who is a board-certified physician in order to report accurate participant completion data in PARS:

  • Date of completion
  • Physician's specialty board-assigned ID (Those learners who do not know their number can retrieve it from their specialty board's website or by contacting their board directly.)
  • First name
  • Last name
  • Date of birth (month/day)

Important note: In addition to collecting the data listed above, you must also obtain permission from each physician learner to share this completion information with the ACCME.  On their website, the ACCME states that, "this information is used to ensure that the data is accurate and valid, and associated with the correct board-certified diplomate when it is being reported to the board."


What exactly is a REMS activity?

REMS stands for Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy.  On their CME for FDA REMS page, the ACCME explains that the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007 gave the FDA the authority to require manufacturers of drugs and biological products to put in place special programs if the FDA determines that safety measures are needed beyond the professional labeling to ensure that the benefits of products outweigh their risks.  The manufacturers then implement FDA-monitored actions to address those risks.  The FDA calls each of these a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS).
