Tennessee Health Care Innovation Initiative
“Over the next 5 years, the Tennessee Health Care Innovation Initiative will shift a majority of health care spending, both public and private away from fee for service to three outcomes based payment strategies…With these efforts, it's our hope that Tennessee will be at the forefront of a national trend that is expected to gain momentum in the coming years.”

IMPORTANT: From the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiner's Administrative Office
Regarding Continuing Education Requirements for Medical Doctors

All medical doctors must complete forty (40) hours in the two calendar years preceding the year of license renewal. Unless exempted by statute, two (2) of the forty (40) required hours must relate to controlled substance prescribing, which must include instruction in the Department’s treatment guidelines on opioids, benzodiazepines, barbiturates and carisoprodol and may include instruction on topics such as medicine addiction, risk management tools and other topics approved by the Board.
If your medical license is renewed in October of 2016, forty hours of CME must be completed between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2015. It doesn’t matter how many hours are completed in a single year as long as forty total hours are completed within the appropriate two year timeframe.
