Web-Based Certification System for Medical Board
The American Board of Emergency Medicine, a medical specialty certification board, certifies emergency physicians and manages a formal Maintenance of Certification (MoC) process for emergency physicians who meet its educational, professional standing, and examination standards.
Increasingly, the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM) had begun using technology and the Internet to streamline processes associated with its Emergency Medical Continuing Certification (EMCC) program. The current certification management system required manual application and registration processes, where candidates had to contact ABEM staff who would then manually perform administrative tasks for the candidate. ABEM had decided a web‑based system would enhance and accommodate streamlined business practices related to the EMCC program, while maintaining a common application architecture and central database of information
LatitudeLearning launched EMCC Online, an ABEM branded version of the LatitudeLearning.com Open-Source learning management system (LMS). EMCC Online helped streamline the following certification processes.
LatitudeLearning provided core LMS functionality to manage examinations and certification. Candidates could now run reports, view individual certification status, and register for examinations. It also allowed ABEM administrators to manage examination facilities, resources, and schedules. LatitudeLearning features that met the certification needs of ABEM and its geographically dispersed clients included:
The LatitudeLearning implementation of EMCC Online provided hundreds of users with immediate web-based access to their certification data. Candidates could begin the certification process anywhere, at anytime
ABEM audiences accepted EMCC Online, which delivered the following benefits:
LatitudeLearning.com’s Open-Source LMS streamlined administrative processes so ABEM could more efficiently manage its continuing certification program through EMCC Online.
