Zynx Health Introduces Zynx CME for Point-of-Care CME Credit
Accrediting organization Annenberg Center for Health Sciences at Eisenhower to provide credits to qualified ZynxEvidence physician users
LOS ANGELES, SEPTEMBER 12, 2017Zynx Health™, a market leader in providing evidence- and experience-based clinical improvement solutions, announced today that beginning September 15, 2017, physician users will be able to earn point-of-care continuing medical education (CME) credit from ZynxEvidence pages. Zynx has partnered with the accrediting organization Annenberg Center for Health Sciences at Eisenhower to offer Zynx CME, a point-of-care CME solution available to users accessing Zynx’s award-winning evidence-based content.
 
“Medical professionals must obtain CME credits in order to retain their licensure, but are often challenged by the need to earn 25 or more credits a year while also balancing full-time patient loads,” said Kevin Daly, president of Zynx Health. “Zynx CME embeds CME activities within Zynx content so that physicians can easily earn credits any time they as they read an evidence page from within a Knowledge Analyzer checklist or ZynxOrder order set. Each CME activity takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and is worth .5 CME credits – and there is no limit to the number of CME activities a user can complete using their Zynx account!”
 
Zynx CME makes it simple for physicians to claim point-of-care CME credit any time they navigate to a current ZynxEvidence page from their EHR, AuthorSpace or Knowledge Analyzer. After clicking the CME button and completing a short form, users receive an email from the Annenberg Center for Health Sciences at Eisenhower, with instructions on claiming credit from the Center’s online CME portal.
 
The Annenberg Center for Health Sciences at Eisenhower is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. “Through our partnership with Zynx Health, the Annenberg Center is pleased to offer an innovative approach to providing point-of-care CME with a simple and intuitive design that supports physician education integrated seamlessly into their workflow,” stated Michael Hite, president and chief executive officer at the Annenberg Center.
