New Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Requirements for PCPs
The MOC process has expanded to include a quality improvement step required for physician certification:
The American Board of Internal Medicine certification process requires the completion of at least one approved MOC activity by December 31, 2015, and every two years after.
The American Board of Family Medicine requires participation in either a Practice Performance Module or an Approved Alternative Module every three years.
The Quality Alliance is pleased to offer PCPs the
Adult Vaccine Improvement project as an opportunity to earn up to 20 MOC credits.
Improving Adult Vaccination Practices, is a performance improvement (PI) continuing medical education initiative aiming to increase pneumococcal and influenza vaccination rates, thereby reducing the risk of outbreaks, serious illness, hospitalization, and death, as well as reducing direct medical costs of adult patients.
The activity has been designed to support learning through a structured three-stage activity:
