This live activity has been planned as a CME, nurse CE, and MOC-II activity (for diplomates in clinical informatics).


The American Medical Informatics Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.


The American Medical Informatics Association designates this live activity for a maximum of 15.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.  Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

ABPM Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Credit

The American Board of Preventive Medicine has approved iHealth 2016 Clinical Informatics Conference for a maximum of 12.0 Maintenance of Certification Lifelong Learning and Self Assessment (MOC LLSA) credits. This credit will be of relevance to Clinical Informatics diplomates.

The ABPM course ID number is 1322.

ABPM-approved MOC LLSA involves asking learners three multiple choice questions with a single best answer for every 60 minutes of instruction. Learners are to receive meaningful feedback in the form of an explanation of why the right answer is correct.

The American Board of Pathology (ABP) has approved AMIA as a provider for Self-Assessment Modules (SAMs). AMIA is committed to assist ABP diplomates with SAMs that contribute to a diplomate’s MOC activities.

A diplomate claiming CME credit through his amia.org account will need to claim credit type “MOC-II” first, then go on to claim regular CME credit. The CME certificate will note the total amount of credit, and will include a line that says how many of the total are MOC-II credits.

AMIA will track attendee MOC-II credits claimed through our system and report them to the ABPM and to the ABPath.
