How does it know that it’s you?

Answer: Your cell phone number is used as a primary identifier in the Clancy System and in our Tracker transcript system. When you register for an event using Clancy, it simply matches with the phone number associated with your transcript. Therefore, you need to share your cell phone number with the coordinator of you CME activity.

Can I dial-in using someone else’s phone?

Answer: No, not unless you want them to get your credit. You can only register using your cell phone number.

Can I use my office or clinic desk phone instead of my cell phone?

Answer: No. Only your own cell phone will work.

What happens if I do not register through this system?

Answer: If you do not register through this system, no credit will be awarded.

I have poor cell phone reception through my cell phone service provider. Is there an alternative WiFi/Internet check-in?

Answer: Yes, Install the IPhone or Android app (it’s faster and easier) or use your cell phone’s mobile browser and enter “m.checkinhelp.com”.

Four Ways to Sign In

I have blocked my cell phone’s caller-ID

Answer: If you use the app , it won’t matter. However, if you’re dialing in with a blocked caller-ID, your sign-in won’t work. You must first unblock your caller-ID, for this call only, with a *82.


 

By January 30, 2015, all of the attendance at RSS activities accredited by the College of Medicine Office of Continuing Medical Education will be recorded using this method.
