New CreditEval Center Makes Claiming CME Faster, Easier

With everything from pizza ordering to banking available online, it's only natural that claiming CME at RSNA 2013 would be easy and electronic.

CreditEval

Attendees can document their attendance by evaluating RSNA 2013 courses and sessions and claiming their credits at the new online CreditEval Center, available via RSNA 2013 Meeting Central on their own devices or at any of the Internet Kiosks within McCormick Place. Attendees can begin their evaluations as early as 10 minutes after a course begins, claim their credits onsite and walk away with printed certificates in hand.

The new, easy process replaces the former one that relied on paper "chits" included in registration materials. "In this day and age, we are all so accustomed to conducting business online," said Valerie P. Jackson, M.D., RSNA Board Liaison for Education. "RSNA wanted to extend that same online convenience and timeliness to the CME claiming process that so many of us use during the meeting."

Attendees will also receive links via email that enable printing of certificates at home, and for RSNA members credits are automatically added to the RSNA CME Repository. After the meeting, attendees will still be able to evaluate courses and claim credit for one week.

Detailed instructions on how to use the CreditEval program are included in the Meeting Bags distributed to professional registrants. A CreditEval information booth is located in the Lakeside Learning Center, and RSNA personnel are also on hand at the Internet Kiosks to assist with the process.

For Radiologic Technologists

In addition to the CreditEval process, ARRT Attendance Documentation Cards will still be required to claim Category A/A+ continuing education (CE) credit. The process for ARRT Continuing Education (CE) documentation:

  • Attendance will be verified with a check-in and check-out process for all courses and events. All registrants looking to obtain Category A/A+ credit must be present for the duration of the course or event.
  • ARRT Attendance Documentation Cards will be available at the door for all courses and events that are approved for Category A/A+ credit.
  • Attendee must obtain an ARRT Attendance Documentation Card at the beginning of the session, complete the card, and return it to the room monitor at the end of the session.
  • An attendee that forgoes submitting the ARRT Attendance Documentation Card at the close of the session will not obtain credit.
