CHICAGO – July 10, 2019 – The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) announced that Kelsey-Seybold Clinic (Kelsey-Seybold) has joined ABMS’ Multi-Specialty Portfolio Program™ (Portfolio Program). Physicians who are board certified by one or more of the 18 of 24 ABMS Member Boards participating in the Portfolio Program can now earn Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Improvement in Medical Practice (Part IV) credit for their involvement in Kelsey-Seybold quality improvement (QI) activities.

As part of the Portfolio Program, Kelsey-Seybold may now offer medical staff members the opportunity to satisfy their continuing certification program needs, while helping to improve patient health and safety throughout the Greater Houston area. The program will involve approximately 400 providers systemwide, treating more than 350,000 patients.

“Kelsey-Seybold Clinic has always focused on quality, patient satisfaction, and value – tenets that have positioned us to effectively and efficiently manage care for patient populations ranging from the very small to very large,” said Patrick Carter, MD, MBA, FAAFP, Medical Director for Care Coordination and Quality Improvement, and Chief of Family Medicine. “The ABMS Portfolio Program allows our large group practice to help individual providers acquire MOC credits by engaging in Kelsey-Seybold’s own quality improvement initiatives, which are all designed to improve patient care.”
