Wolters Kluwer Health has launched XtraCredit, an iPhone and iPod Touch application that provides physicians with continuing medical education (CME) credit for clinical research done online.
Using XtraCredit, physicians can receive CME credit for online searches of a range of professional sources. Users can download the application at no charge from the XtraCredit website or directly from the iTunes AppStore. Following a search, users document their search experience, noting the approved resource and the impact of the search on their work, and pay a small fee to receive CME credit. XtraCredit was developed by Wolters Kluwer Health subsidiary Lippincott Continuing Medical Education Institute and software developer RSi/FocalSearch.
