Improve the health of the people of Wisconsin by supporting and strengthening physicians' ability to practice high-quality patient care in a changing environment.

Society introduces patient experience performance improvement activity

Physicians who need to complete their Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part IV by the end of 2016 can take advantage of the Wisconsin Medical Society’s “Improving the Patient Experience” performance improvement (PI) module. It takes six months to complete, so physicians should begin no later than the end of the May in order to finish before year-end.

The Society’s unique approach to PI allows physicians and staff to work together to identify gaps and create solutions. This activity satisfies 20 of the 24 American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), as well as supports a health system’s efforts to improve patient experience results. Other benefits include:

  • An opprtunity to earn AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ and MOC Part IV credit.
  • Access to useful tools and resources reviewed by physician faculty.
  • Easy integration of measures aligned with nationally endorsed reporting and payment programs.
  • Onsite facilitation to help conduct meaningful gap analysis and identify system-wide improvement efforts.
  • Opportunity to share best practices and network with colleagues on work and life issues.
  • Easy and efficient electronic documentation of physician progress and results.

Visit the Society’s website for more information, including basic program requirements. Contact Todd Wuerger for details about how to incorporate this performance improvement initiative into existing workflows.
