Podcasts: A “New” Way for Physicians to Earn CMEs
Advances in technology in recent years have made it possible for health systems to streamline their efforts on many levels, from evaluating and monitoring patients remotely to sharing medical information among multiple sites in real time. Some medical centers are also creating audio podcasts to educate patients, the general public, and even clinical staff, according to Tim Disa Jr., general manager of DoctorPodcasting System/RadioMD.
For example, one of his company’s clients, UAB Medicine in Birmingham, Alabama, uses podcasts as continuing medical education (CME) credit opportunities for its clinical staff, who can access the programs on demand from their smartphones, tablets, or computers. The podcasts have been well-received since UAB Medicine launched this effort in January 2017.
