We were told by UTD that they would modify the remote charges if the hospital selected it for the EMR. The cost is still very high compared to other resources. And yes, CME is included now for institutions. We are completing an evaluation of 5 products to select one to link from the physicians' problem list. ****************************************** Margaret Bandy, M.A.L.S., AHIP Manager, Library & Media Services Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital 1835 Franklin St., Denver, CO 80218 303-837-7848 FAX 303-837-7977 [log in to unmask]; www.exempla.org -----Original Message----- From: Medical Libraries Discussion List [mailto:[log in to unmask]] On Behalf Of Kraft, Michelle Sent: Wednesday, September 09, 2009 7:35 AM To: [log in to unmask] Subject: Re: Stark Law and UpToDate CME I would caution you about setting up UTD within your EMR. IF your EMR is accessible to doctors from home then UTD would be accessible from home and your hospital would have to pay the crazy home access costs. We cannot add it to our EMR for that reason. _____________________________________________ Michelle Kraft, MLS, AHIP Senior Medical Librarian Cleveland Clinic Alumni Library 9500 Euclid Ave. NA30 Cleveland, OH 44195 216-445-7338 -----Original Message----- From: Medical Libraries Discussion List [mailto:[log in to unmask]] On Behalf Of Alisha Miles Sent: Wednesday, September 09, 2009 9:31 AM To: [log in to unmask] Subject: Re: Stark Law and UpToDate CME I just looked at the UpToDate Website on the About page. Here is the information I found regarding CME: Yes you can earn CME from UpToDate: Earn CME while using UpToDate to answer your clinical questions. http://utdol.com/online/about/cme_home.html According to the website you can earn CME either through an individual subscription OR access UpToDate through an EMR. You can now access UpToDate through your EMR if the EMR is compatible, and you set it up.
