Wolters Kluwer UpToDate awarded ACCME accreditation with commendation

Leading clinical decision support solution recognized for continuing medical educational content for physicians

Wolters Kluwer Health today announced that its clinical decision support (CDS) solution UpToDate® has been awarded accreditation with commendation from the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME®). This is the fourth time UpToDate has been awarded accreditation with commendation since its initial accreditation. Clinicians stay current on new developments in medical practice by using continuing medical education (CME) resources like UpToDate for professional development and lifelong learning. With UpToDate, users earn CME credits while searching for and reading the answers they need, at their own pace and preference, on the go or in the office.

The ACCME designation extends the re-accreditation for UpToDate to six years rather than the standard four and recognizes UpToDate has demonstrated compliance with all Core Accreditation Criteria plus eight additional criteria including the “Achieves Outcomes” Category. UpToDate is currently the only clinical decision support (CDS) solution accredited with commendation.*

“This recognition from ACCME highlights UpToDate’s exceptional clinical content, outstanding editorial processes, and our team’s commitment to our mission. To attain accreditation with commendation, our CME team extended their work beyond our core efforts by publishing our own CME research and initiating the patient perspective project to bring the patient voice into care,” said Rebecca Connor, MD, Sr. Director of Clinical Content, Wolters Kluwer Health. “We are very proud of our CME offering, which supports lifelong learning and recognizes the value of connecting education and clinical care in real time. The quality of our clinical content is a key differentiator for Wolters Kluwer, and answering clinical questions at the point of care reflects our commitment to improving the delivery of healthcare globally.

According to Graham McMahon, MD, MMSc, President and CEO of ACCME, “UpToDate has been reviewed by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education and awarded accreditation with commendation for 6 years as a provider of continuing medical education (CME) for physicians. Accreditation in the ACCME System seeks to assure the medical community and the public that UpToDate delivers education that is relevant to clinicians’ needs, evidence-based, evaluated for its effectiveness, and independent of commercial influence.”
