Performance Improvement

Performance improvement CME activities consist of three (3) stages by which a physician can learn about specific performance measures (evidence-based), apply measures learned, and re-evaluate performance.  Physicians can earn up to 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.

Stage A:

Assess current practice using identified performance measures.

Stage B:

Implement an intervention based on the performance measures selected in stage A.

Stage C:

Re-evaluate and reflect on performance in practice (Stage B) by comparing to the assessment done in stage A.
