  • Projects must focus on one of the Institute of Medicine's (IOM) six dimensions of quality (i.e., making healthcare more safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient, and equitable).
  • Physicians must provide direct or consultative care to patients as part of the QI project or actively participate in the process of care being addressed by the project. This includes physicians who actively supervise a trainee (resident or fellow) during a QI project.
  • Physicians must demonstrate active collaboration in QI project design and/or implementation, such as team meetings, data analysis, implementation training, etc.

"MOC is a multi-faceted program that includes knowledge and continuous improvement," said Christine Cassel, MD, President and CEO of the American Board of Internal Medicine. "We look for opportunities to reduce the administrative burden for physicians, but still ensure that they are meeting our high standards of self evaluation and quality improvement."

"The three primary care boards are working together to develop novel programs that can be used to maintain certification, and this collaborative pilot with Mayo Clinic represents just one of our innovative projects," said James C. Puffer, MD, President and CEO of the American Board of Family Medicine. "We continue to explore next generation approaches to quality improvement, including those that interface with integrated health care systems, community-based medical groups, and the individual physician's practice."
