“There is no denying that accredited education is in a state of rapid and dramatic change. The industry has shifted its emphasis away from filling seats to illustrating change in physician practice behavior and documenting how many patients can benefit."
Evanston, IL (PRWEB) October 14, 2010
No one can deny the state of medical education combined with the overall healthcare delivery today is nothing short of chaotic. To try and mitigate current conditions and improve the quality of patient care, the Evolution Group, LLC has been launched with the mission of raising the bar for accredited medical education being produced by medical associations and other entities. Evolution Group’s goal is to assist organizations with development, implementation and execution of accredited programming.
Evolution Group will conduct advisory and logistical services for providers that are accredited or thinking about obtaining accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). Evolution will help education providers that need assistance developing strategic plans, modifying their educational offerings or simply needing help getting activities out the door.
According to Pam Ring, director, account services, Evolution Group, the world of accredited education is constantly evolving, often creating havoc for the industry. “There is no denying that accredited education is in a state of rapid and dramatic change. In recent years the industry has shifted its emphasis away from filling seats to illustrating change in physician practice behavior and documenting how many patients can benefit,” she said. However, she added, “Many departments that once focused on producing traditional accredited education must now create more robust activities and complex Maintenance of Certification (MoC) activities, which often takes precedence.”
As resources for education dwindle, the availability of grant dollars decreases and partnerships are becoming harder to come by, it’s no wonder accredited education appears to be fading away, Ms. Ring noted. “Education as we know it is changing and it’s reinventing itself for the better. It will be about educating providers on information they need to know, educating them on how to implement this information into practice and empower them to make the right decisions that result in improved care for patients,” she said.
