ABMS and NQF Convene Summit on Enhancing Physician Performance: Stakeholders Agree Board Certification Should Play Bigger Role in Healthcare Quality Improvement
Date:8/17/2009

at he likes the vision advanced by MOC, seeing doctors as ongoing learners who are responding to measurement and committed to improving.

Summit participants noted that ABMS and its Member Boards can play a role in a number of suggested tactics to improve healthcare, including:

  • Increasing accountability and transparency by making public the results of physician performance assessments, such as results of patient surveys, including the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS). Participants noted that while there are a number of physician-rating systems, most focus only on bedside manner. "Physician rating sites only tell part of the story," said Christine K. Cassel, MD, president and CEO of the American Board of Internal Medicine. "A doctor should be patient- centered and able to provide a good diagnosis and treatment that leads to positive outcomes. The certifying boards have the ability to produce comprehensive, meaningful and reliable performance indicators that can be relayed to patients," she said.
  • Promoting implementation of healthcare information technology -- including electronic medical records for all patients, e-prescribing and email communication with patients -- which can provide support for physicians, improve patient care and reduce costs and waste, such as repeated tests. "These are transformative technologies, and physicians must play a role to ensure that it transforms care in the best ways," said speaker Molly Coye, MD, MPH, CEO, The Health Technology Center.
  • Increasing the amount and availability of data that can help physicians improve their care, such as disease registries, and encouraging various groups to share data that can help establish standards and in turn result in improved patient care.
  • Sharing information on quality improvement programs that have been successfully implemented with documented results showing improved care. S
