eeds - Continuing Medical Education Integration

The eeds integration allows organizations to view and track CME credits imported from eeds within learners' transcripts in the Cornerstone Learning Management System (LMS). Using this integration, learners and learning administrators are able to search, find, and confirm CME credits on the learner's transcript.

Use Case

ACME Hospital schedules a weekly session of Cardiology Grand Rounds. Dr. Smith would like to see the upcoming schedule, so she searches for Cardiology Grand Rounds in the Cornerstone LMS, finds the event, and clicks a link in the description to see the schedule for the event.

On May 8th, Dr. Smith is able to sign into the Cardiology Grand Rounds session via the eeds app or on the website. After she completes the various requirements for the course, such as an evaluation and post-test, the attendance data is sent to the Cornerstone LMS.

Dr. Smith logs into the LMS the next day and can view her transcript with the TEDMED event information. She can also view her certificate by clicking on the eeds Certificate link in the training details for the event. With the help of the eeds integration, Dr. Smith is able to take training, view training details, and complete associated actions all through one system.

Exclusions

The following exceptions apply to the eeds integration:

  • CME/CEU credits will not be aggregated. If an organization needs a sum of the CME/CEU credits, they must go to eeds-CME via the certificate link or access a training report via the LMS and export to excel.
  • Training hours, which refers to the actual hours and minutes of an event, appears on the user's transcript and will be aggregated with other learning objects (LOs).
  • Historical data is not reflected on the transcript. eeds-CME will be the sole system of record for historical (i.e. pre-integration) data. Note: eeds-CME can send historical data as an add-on.

Implementation

For organizations using the Learning module, the eeds integration is available for an additional cost. To purchase this integration, contact your Cornerstone representative and have it enabled via a case with Global Product Support (GPS). After the integration has been enabled, you will need to configure it by following the steps outlined in the Enablement Guide: Click here to access the Enablement Guide for the eeds integration.
