NABP to enhance e-Profile ID access, CPE activity page

January 29, 2013

 

Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are now required by most providers to have an e-Profile ID number and be registered for CPE Monitor, a national tracking service, to process Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE)-accredited continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credit. ACPE-accredited providers had to integrate their systems with the CPE Monitor by Jan. 1.

For those licensees and registrants who have already created their e-Profile, the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) is creating a new query system that will allow these specific users to quickly retrieve their e-Profile ID online without having to log in.

The “My e-Profile ID Quick Search” tool will be accessible in early February on the NABP website. Individuals will simply enter their first and last names and username to obtain their e-Profile ID on screen. As a security measure, a separate email will be sent to the user to let him or her know that the ID was requested. The e-Profile ID will also be included in that email.

Along with the launch of the search tool, the CPE Monitor activity page that displays licensees’ CPE credits will have a new look. The change will create a more consistent view of activity data while allowing all data columns to fit on one page, according to NABP. Users will also have the ability to view additional section text by hovering over the section with their mouse.

NABP continues to encourage pharmacists and pharmacy techs to create their e-Profiles so as not to lose out on any CPE credit. To ensure that an e-Profile is fully activated, an individual must record at least one license, registration, or certification number in his or her e-Profile.
