CME: New Online Performance Improvement Programs for Physicians
As the technology partner of the New Jersey Academy of Family Physicians (NJAFP), DLC Solutions is please to announce the launch of two innovative, online Performance Improvement Programs on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and colorectal cancer (CRC). These easy-to use, interactive professional development programs are designed to educate physicians on incorporating quality improvement (QI) initiatives into their practice, which can impact patient care and outcomes.
Throughout each module, physicians will be able to identify areas of practice strength and opportunities for improvement through the collection and comparison of patient and practice data. Physicians will be able to develop a QI plan, implement interventions, and complete a post-assessment process to determine if improvement was achieved.
Each self-paced module is accredited for 20 hours of American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) Performance Improvement credit.

Thank you Derek for your post and your concerns are legitimate.
With these particular CME programs, the New Jersey Academy of Family Physicians is not asking for, permitting, or collecting any data that could be used to reveal the identity of a particular patient. There are no patient interviews or chart reviews conducted by anyone other than the treating physician. Rather, these programs collect information about what clinical practice steps physicians are employing to treat or manage a particular condition, compare them to consensus guidelines (and other sources), and help with recommendations for quality improvement plans. The hope is that by providing a tool to assist physicians in analyzing their practice and implementing quality improvement plans, patient care may improve.
These programs are focused solely upon quality improvement and should not be considered formal clinical trials or studies where IRB approval would be appropriate.
Since our firm just developed the technology, you can also contact NJAFP with any additional questions at: (609) 394-1711.
Thank you again for your thoughtful feedback! Jeremy
