The DARTNet Institute Joins ABMS Multi-Specialty Portfolio Program
Program Offers Participating Physicians an Opportunity to Maintain Board Certification and Improve Patient Health and Safety
CHICAGO – December 17, 2018 – The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) announced that the DARTNet Institute has joined ABMS’ Multi-Specialty Portfolio ProgramTM (Portfolio Program). Physicians who are Board Certified by one of the 20 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 selected DARTNet Institute’s Quality Improvement (QI) activities.
The DARTNet Institute is a growing collaboration of Practice-Based Research Networks (PBRNs), academic health centers, clinicians, and patients that provide access to reliable, secure databases and foster research to improve the quality of care and patient outcomes in clinical practice. The networks blend QI, effectiveness, and translational research from a data-driven perspective. The DARTNet Institute manages a registry database of more than 60,000 physicians and mid-level providers representing more than 20 million patients across the United States.
Through the Portfolio Program, the DARTNet Institute plans to have a variety of pre-approved measures to offer to participating providers, which will focus on Asthma Management, Chronic Kidney Disease Management and Screening, Adult and Pediatric Immunizations, and Behavioral Health Management and Screening. Sites will be able to add new metrics that match their local QI activities, providing outcomes that can be measured using electronic health record data. This will allow clinical organizations to match their high priority QI efforts with the need for their physicians to receive MOC Improvement in Medical Practice credit.
