Practice Quality Improvements
According to the maintenance of certification program as described by the American Board of Radiology a PQI project is required every 3 years.
To get PQI credit through the chartrounds project you must:
- Submit and present a case to the specialist during a live session and review clinical management the treatment plan of your patient.
- Fill out the feedback form fully at the end of your session.
Participation by presenting a case (submit and present a case to the specialist during a live session and review clinical management and treatment fields of your patient’s treatment plan) in 1 Chartrounds session will qualify you for one of the required PQI projects. By listening in only you will receive CME credits but not credit toward a PQI project. After each session a feedback form is available to you. You must fill out the Feedback Form completely after each session to be eligible for either PQI or CME credit. Your Feedback form will be stored in the member’s area. You can print it and file it as a hard copy or store it on the Chartrounds site. The ABR may require you to show documented proof of participation in a PQI project and this documentation will serve as your proof.
There is an area on the feedback form which asks “How will you change your practice as a result of today’s session?” In order to meet the standards set forth by the ABR you will be automatically asked 3 months after filling this out whether or not you actually made those changes in your practice.
