Mannie Hall, former Director of the Center for Continuing Medical Education and Physician Lifelong Learning at the University of Missouri Health Care and MU Women’s & Children’s Hospital, discusses how the ABMS Portfolio Program™ supports MU’s quality improvement (QI) efforts. He also talks about the unique model MU has developed to make its Portfolio Program initiatives a success. Being a Portfolio Program Sponsor allows MU to be “innovative, creative, collaborative, and impactful” when it comes to QI initiatives, he says.
"The University of Missouri School of Medicine joined the Portfolio Program several years ago. Our Portfolio Program has been extremely successful because we have developed this unique model that consists of five components and those five components consist of integrating quality improvement into Project ECHO. Also the use of real-time Medicaid data that's provided to our physicians. We also utilize a learning collaborative process and we also go to the clinic and we engage in practice facilitation and then lastly we have this enhanced credentialing system where we use five different types of credentials if they engage in meaningful participation. Those consists of MOC part four, MOC part two, legacy CME, PI CME, and also learning from teaching. The University of Missouri School of Medicine is proud to be a Portfolio Program sponsor because institutions like ours are allowed to be innovative, creative, collaborative, and impactful."
