Medical Home Builder renamed ACP Practice Advisor to
reflect broad scope of use
PHILADELPHIA, July 26, 2013 -- ACP Practice Advisor,
formerly known as Medical Home Builder, has added two modules that
internists can use to achieve Self-Evaluation of Practice
Performance points towards Maintenance of Certification (MOC)
through the American Board of Internal Medicine.
"Beginning January 2014, internal medicine physicians must earn
some MOC points every two years and 100 MOC every five years in
order to be listed as 'Meeting MOC Requirements,'" said Michael S.
Barr, MD, MBA, FACP, who leads the American College of Physicians'
(ACP) Division of Medical Practice. "A minimum of 20 of those
points must be in the area of assessment of their clinical
practice. ACP Practice Advisor's diabetes and adult immunization
modules will help physicians achieve this requirement."
ACP plans to expand the number of modules associated with MOC
and eventually offer the same opportunity to other specialties.
"We renamed the tool to more accurately reflect its broad
scope," Dr. Barr said, explaining the name change. "Clinicians can
use ACP Practice Advisor to improve particular clinical or office
operations, or to meet the patient-centered medical home standards
established by the NCQA, Joint Commission, or URAC."
Approximately 1,500 practices nationwide have successfully used
ACP Practice Advisor since it was introduced in 2009. Providing
practice teams with a robust self-assessment tool to improve
patient care, streamline fundamental business operations, and
identify and implement key features of the patient-centered medical
home (PCMH), users are part of an online community of practices
committed to improving patient care and identifying office
ACP Practice Advisor offers 27 self-paced modules that address
the key attributes and expectations of a PCMH, improving clinical
care, and practice management. Each module includes:
