Focus. Measure. Change. Remeasure.
The Practice Assessment option for earning MOC points gives ABIM Board Certified physicians the opportunity to participate in activities that help to improve the quality of patient care in their practice. Quality Improvement (QI) projects should include identifying and quantifying an improvement opportunity in your practice, implementing a change to address that opportunity, and measuring the impact of your change.
ABIM has extended the decision to not require Practice Assessment in its MOC program through 12/31/2018. See details.
Options for Practice Assessment:
Option One Have you recently been involved in a QI activity?
Option Two Are there quality improvement activities sponsored by organizations near you or to which you belong?
Option Three Do you have access to quality data or reports that you could use to test a change in your practice?
Option Four Do you supervise medical students, residents or fellows?
Option Five Do none of the options above work for you?
ABIM PIM Practice Improvement Modules® help you design and implement a QI plan for your practice and are free of charge with your MOC enrollment fee. PIMs can take 3-6 months so please allow this amount of time to complete them.
