                GOALS


             MOC Relevant
•Accountability for competence
•Accountability for practice quality
•Reshape Continuing Medical Education

         MOC is Essential; Tied to:
•Hospital Credentialing
•Maintenance of Licensure
•Pay for Performance
         Three Trends Make MOC Relevant

   Public wants accountability for performance
       Purchaser decision about quality
   Quality can be measured
       Patient’s perceptions and health status
       Guideline adherence and achieving outcomes
   Quality can be improved
       Health care results from system
       Change system processes improves care
    Relevance of MOC For A Composite
        Measure of Physician Quality

   Customers
     Healthcare purchasers & patients
     Health plans, medical staffs, group practices

   Competitors
     National Committee for Quality Assessment
