What is Performance Improvement (PI) CME?

The American Medical Association defines Performance Improvement CME activities as structured, long-term processes in which physicians:

  • Learn about performance measures related to an aspect of their clinical practice
  • Use measures to retrospectively assess their practice
  • Implement a set of educational interventions designed for sustained improvement in patient care
  • Track those measures prospectively
  • Re-evaluate their performance

Your participation in this activity will allow you to not only impact your patients and clinical practice, but impact patients nationwide as you become a part of the ever-growing momentum for the positive change of immunization rates.

PROTECT's Performance Improvement CME activity is an innovative educational format that is technology-driven, self-directed, and user friendly. It provides a three-step structured program comprised of the following:


Stage A: Assess

Assess current practice using identified performance measures through a self-assessment survey and patient chart reviews


Stage B: Apply

Implement a set of educational interventions designed for sustained improvement in patient care


Stage C: Evaluate

Complete a follow-up self-assessment survey and additional patient chart reviews to reassess practice performance and compare to results previously reported in Stage A


The University of Nebraska Medical Center, Center for Continuing Education designates this PI-CME activity for a maximum of 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
