Health e Galaxy is an online service of 30 minute CME video programs presented by national thought leaders on important state-mandated and other topics of interest to practicing clinicians.

The service is only available through institutional subscriptions and provides convenient and secure access for staff and attending physicians of the subscribing hospital. Here's how it works:

  1. Every month, a new CME-certified video is developed, released, and posted at
  2. Physicians associated with the subscribing hospital receive an e-mail announcement alerting them when a new program is available. Program details (title, description, learning objectives, credit designations) are included in the e-mail. Downloadable, printable program announcements are also available on the web site for distribution to affiliated staff.
  3. Physicians use user name and personal password to access the online program and receive CME credit for viewing it. An evaluation and post-test is included as part of the activity. The programs are available on-demand and can be accessed 24/7. Many hospitals use the programs as a centerpiece for their own monthly CME meetings.
  4. Evaluations can be completed online and CME certificates are automatically generated from the site.

E-mail announcement

When a new program has been released, your staff and attending physicians will receive a detailed HTML e-mail with the following information:
  1. Program title and description
  2. Faculty presenters' names and affiliations
  3. Learning objectives
  4. Amount of credit offered
  5. Suggested reading list
  6. Hyperlink to program
  7. Upcoming programs


How often will I receive a new program?

A new video program will be posted every month. Past programs will be archived and continue to be available for on-demand viewing.

What kinds of topics are offered??

Health e Galaxy provides a variety of contemporary topics of interest to primary care physicians, hospitalists, and other specialists. You'll find important subjects, including state-mandated CME topics, which are rarely covered by other CME providers. Occasionally, individual programs are supported by educational grants from industry.

Each month, a new program will be posted from one of the following main categories:

Masters Programs on Critical Topics in Medicine: These programs are in-depth reviews of important topics in emergency medicine, cardiology, oncology, infectious disease, gastroenterology, and other key disease states by one of the world's master clinicians in a grand rounds-style lecture. State-mandated CME Topics: These programs are important to licensure in many states and include topics such as HIV/AIDS management, domestic violence, pain management, risk management, and medical ethics.

Programs Covering Hospital Quality/Performance and Credentialing Issues: These programs provide information on Joint Commission requirements, quality-assurance initiatives, evidence-based practice guidelines, and clinical implementation strategies to ensure "best practices" are implemented.

Late-Breaking and Hot Topics: Programs in this category include updates on rapidly evolving subjects such as avian influenza and hospital preparedness for bioterrorism. Segments from this category may also include timely reports from major medical conferences.

How much, and what kind of CME credit is offered?

Health e Galaxy programs are developed by CME providers that are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

All Health e Galaxy programs are certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit on an hour-for-hour basis. Most are designated for .5 or up to 1 AMA PRA Category 1 credit. In addition, most video programs are certified for Prescribed Credit by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) and Category 2A credit from the American Osteopathic Association (AOA).
