Welcome to Vivacity Consulting, LLC

CME Consulting | ACCME Accreditation | Conflict of Interest (COI) Management

Vivacity Consulting’s Goal: reduce your workload, simplify the CME paperwork, improve the quality and impact of the education offered, and increase the appeal of your organization’s activities.

If you have an ACCME reaccreditation or Progress Report coming up, we can offload some or all of the work from your desk. We function as partners with your organization to ascertain compliance and identify opportunities for improvement.

If your program has experienced a decline in registrations and/or enthusiasm for your offerings, we can work with the CME leadership to evaluate your overall program and develop a strategic plan moving forward.

If faculty conflict of interest (COI) management seems overwhelming, we can develop a process tailored for your organization.

Vivacity Consulting provides medical education expertise to specialty societies, hospitals, university health science centers, medical education companies, and others. We offer you highly acclaimed assistance for all aspects of continuing medical education design, implementation and evaluation, as well as assistance with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and/or IMQ/CMA accreditation process.
