New Portal Will Manage CME Activities

The new Web-based CME portal is called CloudCME.

The Continuing Medical Education office has implemented a new portal to manage all CME activities at Cedars-Sinai. The barcode and badge system used to track attendance for more than two decades is being replaced.

The new Web-based CME portal is called CloudCME. You will be able to access your credit history on this portal via a link on My CS-Link™, a direct link or the CME office Internet site. A link to the portal also is available from the Intranet home page.

How this affects you as a member of the medical staff:

  • You no longer will need your badge to obtain CME credit at activities.
  • You will simply sign in (as you are already doing) on the appropriate sign-in sheets for the activities you attend.
  • The departmental CME agent will then input your attendance into the CME portal. Departmental agents are already trained, and your information is already in the system.
  • Once credit is entered into the system, it will be immediately viewable on your transcript via the new CME portal (replacing the CME transcripts in WebVS).
  • The initial rollout was completed this week. Additional features of the system, including online program evaluations, will be implemented over the coming year.

All medical staff members should have accounts in the new system. Your user name is the email address that you have on file with the medical staff office. An email with your login information was sent to that address from the CME office (cme@cshs.org) on Jan. 20.

If you have questions or did not receive the email containing your login information, please contact the CME Office at cme@cshs.org or 310-423-5548.
