Using the Online PHDS for Maintenance of Certification Part 4

Key Requirements and Considerations

[reveal title="The ABP Diplomate must conduct a QI project related to his or her individual practice " open="false,true" color="grey-lite"]

  • An ABP Diplomate may choose to conduct the QI project as a part of a larger QI effort, with a group of providers in his/her practice, with a larger organization or as a part of a Learning Collaborative. In these cases, the provider will need to coordinate with the larger group to receive reports of the group-level data. However, in order to receive credit for MOC, the provider must participate in all aspects of the QI project by reviewing his/her individual provider-level Online PHDS reports and actively participating in the development and implementation of the QI activity.

  • T1 = baseline data, collected before the QI activity is implemented
  • T2 = follow-up data, collected after the QI activity is implemented
  • T3 = final data, collected after the QI activity has been refined

[/reveal] [reveal title="Surveys must be collected from at least 15 respondents at each data collection timepoint. " open="false,true" color="grey-lite"]

  • The CAHMI recommends that providers collect data from at least 30 respondents at each time-point, and providers who are interested in measuring the “Follow-up for Children at Risk” measure will need to increase their sample size.
