The Challenge

National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) offers accredited educational activities which positively impact patients that need oncology care. Common CME activities include live conferences and symposia, live webinars, on-demand webcasts, and The Journal of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.  Key objectives of these programs include objectively measuring the performance improvement on patient outcomes. The other important success criteria for this implementation from various departments at NCCN were as follows:

  • Operations: Streamline the workflow and attendance tracking for NCCN live conferences, which are very popular educational events. The NCCN Annual National Conference is attended by thousands of oncologists, nurses and other healthcare professionals.

  • CME: Measure outcomes of learners by setting up follow up post-tests triggered on specific criteria.

  • Reporting and Measurement: Visually compelling reports to compare learners’ performance in quizzes for quicker analysis and decision making.

  • Finance:  Set up reminder e-mails to enhance learner participation in activities. This feature was very important to ensure greater learner participation so as to realize the best ROI on activity set up costs.

  • Marketing:  Match the look-and-feel of NCCN.org to create a consistent user experience.

Our Solution

EthosCE successfully delivered this highly time sensitive project within budget through careful planning and proven project management methodologies. We integrated EthosCE with Cvent conference management system, marketing, and WebEx using third party APIs.  

EthosCE’s built in email reminder system and assessment engine made follow up post-assessments and benchmark comparison reports an easy milestone to hit. The Single Sign On integration with the main NCCN eCommerce site and overall theming of the education center were less complex items to implement and had few surprises. EthosCE is proud to be associated with this implementation for a prestigious group like NCCN and we continue to enjoy a strong partnership today.
