The ABP is receiving and approving more quality improvement applications than ever before, as diplomates seek Maintenance of Certification credit for the quality improvement (QI) work they’re already doing.
While diplomates took advantage of the opportunity to claim credit for QI work they were already engaged in, the board used 2016 to focus on improvements to the program. As a result, a quick application checklist (PDF) was developed to make it easy for diplomates to complete and submit the application.
With the right documents in hand, a diplomate can easily complete the application process in less than 30 minutes!
This year, the board is looking to receive even more applications, projecting those approvals will continue to increase.
The application is specifically designed for teams of 1-10 physicians, but there’s another application available for bigger teams.
