ABP Co-Sponsors Forum on Organizational Quality Improvement

Tuesday, June 16, 2015 - 11:00

The American Board of Pediatrics recently co-sponsored the Forum on Organizational Quality Improvement, along with The Multi-Specialty Portfolio Approval Program and the American Board of Medical Specialties.

The event was held May 13, 2015, in Rosemont, IL, and showcased initiatives within the ABMS Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Multi-Specialty Portfolio Approval Program. This particular pathway allows physicians to submit QI projects through their institutions for MOC credit approval. Discussions centered around leadership concepts, best practices by Portfolio Program sponsors, and successes and obstacles faced by participants.

There is a growing number of opportunities in which physicians can apply for MOC credit for the quality improvement work they are already engaged in, including through the Multi-Specialty Portfolio program

The ABP recently announced even more ways its diplomates can apply for MOC credit, including participation in quality improvement projects as part of obtaining National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) 2011 or 2014 recognition. 

Other quality improvement projects — including projects that include 1-10 physicians — may also be eligible for MOC credit approval.
