ProMutual Group Announces Redesigned CME Website Available to Physicians Nationwide

Boston, MA - May 16, 2011 - ProMutual Group, a leading provider of medical professional liability insurance, is pleased to announce the launch of its redesigned continuing medical education (CME) website, available to physicians nationwide. The sophisticated and efficient website is one of many ProMutual Group risk management strategies that help physicians provide the safest and highest quality of care to patients.

“We are proud of this initiative and the important content it allows physicians to access,” said Diane McKenna, director of physician education for ProMutual Group. “We feel it is our responsibility to use our experience, data and knowledge of risk issues in clinical practice to help physicians nationwide provide the best care possible for their patients and we are pleased to have the opportunity to do so.”

The user-friendly website allows physicians to create and update their account information, save course progress and resume where they left off, view their completed courses, view and print earned certificates and request the ProMutual Group Risk Management Protocols manual. The featured news, trends and topics located on the homepage, in addition to course overviews, help physicians determine the courses that best fit their individual needs. The website also includes a page outlining collaboration with other organizations, an effort that allows ProMutual Group to provide physicians with a wider range of educational opportunities.

“Redesigning the ProMutual Group CME website was crucial in our mission to increase patient safety, improve patient care and decrease medical malpractice litigation,” said Gregg L. Hanson, chief operating officer for ProMutual Group. “By providing physicians with quality and relevant CME courses from an experienced, knowledgeable and trusted source, we are able to positively impact physician practices for the benefit of everyone involved.”

The online accessibility of CME activities provides physicians with the freedom to participate in coursework at their leisure, allowing more time for patient care. While all physicians must obtain CME credits to maintain their licenses, many states require that a certain number of the total credits earned be in risk management. ProMutual Group offers risk management CME courses ranging from opioids to electronic health records to money matters.
ProMutual Group is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education to physicians.
