NEW! Population Health Activity Using PHATE Now Available for ABFM Certification Credit

We’re excited to announce the launch of a new Performance Improvement (PI) activity using the Population Health Assessment Engine (PHATE™). PHATE is a population health tool commissioned by ABFM and developed in collaboration with the Center for Applied Research and Engagement Systems (CARES) at the University of Missouri. With PHATE, clinicians can gain a fuller understanding of their patient population in the context of their community.

This new activity is designed to deepen the users’ understanding of Social Determinants of Health (SDOH), expand their implications for varied health outcomes and illness experiences through a geographic lens, and apply this understanding in practice with their patients.

This activity is available now in your MyABFM Portfolio.

PRIME Registry has fielded a patient-reported measure of primary care that focuses attention and support on the integrating, personalizing, and prioritizing functions that patients and clinicians say are important. Titled the “Person Centered Primary Care Measure”, or PCPCM, this measure may reduce both the de-personalization experienced by patients, and the measurement burden, burnout, and crisis of meaning experienced by clinicians. This measure is currently available in the PRIME Registry Quality Dashboard for MIPS reporting. [click to expand or read more]

The PCPCM uses a survey to ask patients to assess 11 distinct yet highly interrelated items regarding their assessment of the care they receive. The 11 items were developed with input from hundreds of patients and physicians, and are associated with better personal and population health, equity, quality and costs.

The PCPCM is part of the Measure That Matter initiative. Learn More
