Somnia Anesthesia Awarded Accreditation in ACCME System
HARRISON, NY – Somnia Anesthesia, a national anesthesia practice management company, today announced it has completed review by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME®) and awarded Provisional Accreditation status for two (2) years as a provider of continuing medical education (CME) for physicians.
According to the organization, “Accreditation in the ACCME System seeks to assure the medical community and the public that Somnia Anesthesia delivers education that is relevant to clinicians’ needs, evidence-based, evaluated for its effectiveness, and independent of commercial influence.”
“We at Somnia are incredibly proud of this designation, which recognizes our compliance with all rigorous accreditation requirements,” says Marc E. Koch, MD, MBA, FASA, president and CEO. “It also signals to our current and prospective clinicians and clients, and to patients, that they can be assured of our commitment to education, the delivery of clinical best practices, and optimizing their outcomes.”
The ACCME System employs a thorough process for evaluating institutions’ CME programs relying on standards that reflect the values of the educator community and aim to accelerate learning, inspire change, and champion improvement in healthcare.
“This accreditation reflects the dedication to lifelong learning we have always supported for our anesthesia providers,” says Robert C. Goldstein, MD, Somnia Anesthesia’s co-founder and CMO. “Our goal always has been to provide the anesthesiologists and CRNAs in our national network with the opportunity not only to maintain competency in their skills, but also to acquire new and emerging ones. This status permits our organization to award physicians with AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for continuing medical education (CME) activities.”
The newly achieved status dovetails with the relaunch of Somnia University™, the company’s internal education program comprising an online learning portal and in-person workshops that provide anesthesiologists and CRNAs a variety of CME modules and skills training which they can complete at their convenience.
