This demonstration focuses on a PI-CME platform that provides participants with instant, clear feedback on their performance, along with action plan suggestions that are specifically tied to performance. The platform is currently in use for osteopathic performance improvement (OCC Part IV, the osteopathic equivalent of MOC Part IV).

Demo attendees will see how the technology enables instructional designers/CE specialists to specify the content of intelligent recommendations and map recommendations to data, rather than requiring developers to implement this logic. These recommendations are then displayed to participants in an "infographic" that helps participants to connect the recommended learning to their own performance. This infographic makes it easy for participants to create individual learning plans that are research-based and compliant with certification requirements.

This demonstration will include an overview of how the various components of an on-demand, self-paced performance improvement activity (including learning interventions, action plans, and job aids/performance support) have been implemented in practice, and discussion of the technologies required to implement this system. The demonstrators are the PI-CME activity designer and the technologist who led development of the platform.
