ISS SUPPORT SERVICES DIVISION

ISSís Support Services Division builds and maintains web sites and intranets. It provides customized CE meeting planning solutions and methods for helping associations provide complete meeting services to their members. This includes scanable CE formats (for fast CEU credit issuance) to quality ID card badges for board members, association members, or meeting attendees.

ISS is committed to improving the state of continuing medical education (CME) programs for health professionals by:

  1. Developing and evaluating innovative approaches to CME
  2. Promoting interactive, evidence-based, "problem-solving" CME programs
  3. Working with first-tier academic centers and professional societies to enhance their online education programs
  4. Performing peer-reviewed research in medical education, and creating an open community for suggestions, ideas, and constructive criticism of CME programs
  5. The needs assessment focus is clinical and practical. For example, what does a practicing physician need to know? What timely and relevant studies have been reported recently and what do their results tell us? Where can a busy physician find information and acquire CME credit quickly?

ISS is supported primarily by fees from individual users and organizations that desire a venue for ethical and quality continuing education programs for healthcare professionals. Some course development is supported by grants from healthcare organizations, and these sources of support are always identified on the course information page. ISS only offers courses supported by educational grants from pharmaceutical or device companies once a complete an independent needs assessment has been completed by our autonomous panel of physicians, pharmacists, nurses, and other medical professionals.
