What are the benefits of reporting physician-learner data?

For those of you offering AMA PRA Category 1™ credit, the new JA-PARS offers these improvements:

  • You have the option to enter, track, and manage physicians’ CME completion data for any of your activities, using manual entry, batch upload, or web services. 
  • You can report CME and MOC/Continuing Certification participation in the same record, and we’ve reduced data entry in the web form. 
  • Data entry via the web form: For most physician learners, you’ll only need to enter their first and last name, month and day of birth (not year), and state of licensure to make a match. 
  • We’ve created a learner matching application programming interface (API), enabling you to pre-validate learner-identification data prior to entering information about participation in CME and MOC/Continuing Certification, reducing rejections. This tool can be used manually, via batch upload, or web services. 
  • Physicians will be able to quickly search by activity format, date, types of credit offered, and topic.
