American Board of Medical Specialties - Maintenance of Certification Part IV

The Permanente Federation, representing Kaiser Permanente as a nation-wide organization, has been accepted into a pilot program being conducted by 20 specialty boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties.

Under this pilot, existing or future PMG-sponsored quality improvement projects that meet specific requirements and documentation criteria specified by the boards will be included in the Permanente QI portfolio and qualify for MOC Part IV credit for participating physicians certified by the boards in the pilot. An attestation process is required by the boards to help ensure that physicians using qualifying QI projects for MOC credit meet board requirements for meaningful participation. The Federation will then report physician participation to the applicable specialty boards. No patient or specific physician data will be shared.

We are one of a select few organizations participating in this pilot, which is currently scheduled to run through the end of 2013. KP was invited to apply as a national entity (rather than as individual regions), due to our broad geographical reach, reputation for quality, and because we are a different type of organization than the other current pilot participants. The Permanente Federation will be facilitating this process, assisting the regions to be sure our overall participation is aligning with regional needs and priorities. At the end of 2013 Kaiser was invited to extend our participation and we are now scheduled to run through the end of 2020.

Participation is limited to Permanente Medical Group physicians certified by the boards participating in the pilot.
