XtraCredit® CME App for your iPhone

XtraCredit® is an iPhone app that allows you to search for answers to clinical questions. You can earn CME while you do that and receive CME right at the "point of care." This isn't a free medical app, but you can test it for free and see if you like it. Here are some of the details:
Earn CME credit as you find answers online to your clinical questions. Use the iPhone® iPod Touch® application to document your clinical searches as a learning activity using your office or home computer. XtraCredit allows you to document your search activity via text or dictation (iPod Touch users must have a microphone for dictation).

Certified exclusively by the Lippincott Continuing Medical Education Institute, (LCMEI), a part of Wolters Kluwer Health, XtraCredit allows physicians to receive CME credit for online searches among hundreds of approved online resources including: Ovid's institutional aggregated research platform OvidSP, PubMed, National Guideline Clearing House, OMIM, and scores of others listed below. Credit is provided for this Internet Point-of-Care CME activity by the LCMEI. See summary of credit information in the iPhone to the right.
Test drive the app today through the iPhone App Store - your first use is free! Thereafter you will be charged an introductory price of $4.99 for each completed learning activity.

Speaking of Point of Care CME, here's a snippet that describes POC CME:
Internet Point of Care CME (IPoC) was approved as a format worthy of AMA PRA Category 1™ credit by the AMA in 2007. IPoC acknowledges that one way physicians learn is through the pursuit of an answer to a patient-oriented question. The AMA established the rules to govern this type of learning activity. XtraCredit® software facilitates the documentation of these valuable earning activities.
