The practice assessment component of MOC provides you with various pathways to apply quality measurement to your practice and use the resulting data to improve care.
To meet MOC requirements, you must complete at least 20 practice assessment points every five years. These points can be earned in many ways, including completing ABIM PIMs Practice Improvement Modules® or through the Approved Quality Improvement (AQI) pathway.
ABIM PIMs are evidence-based Web tools that guide physicians through a review of patient data and support the implementation of and/or reporting on a quality-improvement (QI) plan for their practice.
- Some PIMs include data collection tools, such as patient or peer surveys, and/or chart abstraction forms. (Note: Patient surveys completed as part of a PIM also count toward the patient survey requirement of MOC.)
- Some PIMs allow you to enter aggregate data if you have access to quality data reports.
