American Board of Medical Specialties to Include Meaningful Use in Certification Program

The American Board of Medical Specialties will create new measurement tools and incorporate them into the ABMS Maintenance of Certification to promote meaningful use of healthcare information technology, according to an ABMS news release.

ABMS will work with three member boards — the American Board of Family Medicine, the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics — to develop the new assessment tools or enhance existing activities for MOC. This might include expanding and enhancing practice improvement modules, which guide physicians through collecting data from their practice using medical chart reviews; patient surveys;  and a practice system survey to assess performance in a specific clinical area.

The MOC is a program made for physician specialists to promote learning and self-assessment and measures six core competencies: patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communications skills, professionalism and systems-based practice.
