CPE Monitor: Have You Obtained Your e-Profile ID?

New Electronic CE Tracking System for Pharmacists

What is CPE Monitor?

CPE Monitor is a national, collaborative effort by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to provide an electronic system for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to track their completed continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credits. It will also offer boards of pharmacy the opportunity to electronically authenticate the CPE units completed by their licensees, rather than requiring pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to submit their statements of credit upon request or for random audits.

How CPE Monitor Works

Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians will receive a unique identification number (ID) after setting up their e-Profile with NABP. Beginning in the latter part of 2011, pharmacist and pharmacy technician participants will provide their NABP e-Profile ID and date of birth (in MMDD format) to the ACPE-accredited provider when they register for a CPE activity or submit a request for credit. It will be the responsibility of the pharmacist or pharmacy technician to provide the correct information [i.e. ID and DOB (in MMDD format)] in order to receive credit for participating in a CPE activity.

ACPE-accredited providers will submit the completed program information for participants’ CPE credit to the CPE Monitor. The CPE Monitor system will direct electronic data from ACPE-accredited providers to ACPE and then to NABP, ensuring that CPE credit is officially verified by the providers. Once information is received by NABP, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians will be able to log in to access information about their completed CPE activities.

How to Register for CPE Monitor

Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are asked to obtain their NABP e-Profile ID now at www.MyCPEmonitor.net to ensure their e-Profile is properly set up prior to implementation of CPE Monitor. In the latter part of 2011, the e-Profile ID will be required to receive credit for any ACPE-accredited CPE activities. 

Benefiting Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians

CPE Monitor will provide a secure, central system that maintains and tracks all ACPE-accredited CPE credits. This streamlined process will eliminate the need to file and maintain hard copy statements of credit for CPE activities taken from ACPE-accredited providers. Instead, online access to their inventory of completed credits will allow pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to easily monitor their compliance with the CPE requirements of the state or states where they hold a license or registration.

For added convenience, the NABP e-Profile is available 24/7 for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to view a comprehensive list of the ACPE-accredited CPE activities they have taken.  In Phase 2 of this initiative, CPE Monitor will add a function to record CPE from providers not accredited by ACPE. Until Phase 2 is completed, pharmacists and technicians will need to submit proof of completion of CPE from providers not accredited by ACPE directly to the board of pharmacy when required to do so.

Pharmacists or pharmacy technicians with questions regarding their NABP e-Profile or CPE Monitor should refer to the NABP website (www.nabp.net) or contact NABP Customer Service via email at custserv@nabp.net or 847.391.4406.
