Physicians who participate in the Clinical Emergency Data Registry (CEDR) can now meet their Part IV requirement, which contributes to better patient care through ongoing assessment and improvement in the quality of care provided in the emergency department.

A systems integration between ACEP and the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM) allows participants in CEDR to easily fulfill their Maintenance of Certification (MOC) requirement in a few simple steps:
Sign into ACEP’s website to see your CEDR dashboard and “opt-in” to share your CEDR activity with ABEM.
Allow six months to ensure any substantive changes in your clinical practice have been accounted for in CEDR reporting.
Review your performance on the CEDR dashboard a second time to compare your performance.
Six months must elapse between your opt-in and performance review CEDR dashboard sign-ins, so ABEM diplomates who need Part IV credit within a calendar year must sign into CEDR prior to June 30 of that year.
ABEM will receive notification each time you review your data but will not have access to your individual performance on any CEDR measure. ABEM will not use these data to analyze individual performance.
If you have any questions about how participation in CEDR gives you credit for your Part IV requirement, please call ABEM at 517-332-4800, ext. 383.
