MAINTENANCE OF CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS

Group Health support for Maintenance of Certification Part IV

Part IV is the practice performance assessment of Maintenance of Certification, also known as the performance improvement project. Group Health Permanente is participating in a multi-board pilot with other PMGs to permit physicians who are certified in the participating boards to receive MOC practice improvement and CME credit for participation in quality work that is embedded in their practice.
