GLASTONBURY, CT – Integris Group, a leading member-owned medical professional liability insurance company, is pleased to announce that the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) has awarded the Company’s extensive Continuing Medical Education (CME) program with accreditation through July 31, 2027.
The decision came after a rigorous application process, which spanned nearly two years, from the preparation of the submission documentation, to an interview with ACCME officials, to the final result.
“Congratulations to Integris and the Risk Management team for receiving this important and valuable accreditation,” said Dr. Victoria Reyes, Integris Board Member and Chair of the Risk Management Committee. “This was no small feat and will be a valuable benefit to our policyholders.”
The accreditation by the ACCME was timely, given a new reporting requirement recently released by the American Board of Surgery (ABS). Going forward, ABS-certified providers can no longer self-report the 150 hours of Maintenance of Certificate (MOC) eligible CME courses needed to maintain their license. Instead, the MOC credits must be reported through an ACCME accredited provider.
Now nationally accredited through the ACCME, Integris Group has added this reporting capability to the services and benefits they offer their policyholders.
“At Integris, we pride ourselves on delivering exceptional educational content to our membership,” said Denise Condron, VP of Risk Management at Integris Group. “The national accreditation by the ACCME demonstrates this commitment and also enables us to enhance the service we provide our members by allowing us to report these courses on their behalf to the ABS."
