These activities are an opportunity to reflect on what might be improved in the care you deliver, whether organized around a specific disease or an important patient care function (such as improved access to health care, improved patient outcomes or an improved patient experience).
The American Board of Medical Specialties recently expanded the ways in which this requirement can be completed. These include the use of registries, patient logs, patient surveys, peer surveys, practice improvement modules, performance improvement CME activities, etc. The ABD is actively expanding the offerings that we can provide to you, our diplomates, to fulfill this requirement.
One QI activity must be completed in the first 5 years of each 10-year MOC cycle and another in the second.
THE AMERICAN BOARD OF DERMATOLOGY IS CREATING A TWO-YEAR PILOT PERIOD, BEGINNING JANUARY 1, 2016, FOR DEVELOPMENT OF FOCUSED ACTIVITIES TARGETING PRACTICE IMPROVEMENT. DURING THIS TIME NO DIPLOMATE WILL BE AT RISK OF LOSING CERTIFICATION FOR NOT COMPLETING A PRACTICE IMPROVEMENT REQUIREMENT.
The American Board of Dermatology and many dermatology organizations are actively engaged in creating focused Quality Improvement activities that we hope will be useful and relatively easy to perform by busy dermatologists in private practice.
