MOC Integrated as Part of the Standard Work of VON QI Collaboratives.

Vermont Oxford Network (VON) is approved by the American Board of Pediatrics as a MOC Portfolio Sponsor. Both of the VON Newborn Improvement Collaboratives for Quality (NICQ and iNICQ) are included in the VON MOC Portfolio.

VON offers a simplified and streamlined mechanism to earn Maintenance of Certification Part 4 credits for the American Board of Pediatrics “Performance in Practice” component. MOC credit will be earned as part of the routine and standard work of the QI collaboratives.To date, over 500 physicians have used their participation in an approved VON Collaborative for Maintenance of Certification Part 4 credit following criteria established by the American Board of Pediatrics. Individual physicians, or entire physician teams, who are meaningfully engaged in the QI collaborative work are eligible to receive MOC Part 4 credit. To obtain MOC Part 4 credit, simply develop a structured abstract, using the Quality Improvement / MOC Abstracts Submission Guidelines, and submit this to VON on or before the deadline. Each element of the structured abstract must be complete, in order to receive MOC Part 4 credit.
