New ABFM Performance Improvement Activity Launching July 1

Soon after the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) released a COVID-19 Self-Directed Clinical Pilot which allowed physicians to meet their Performance Improvement requirement by sharing any of the changes made in their practice that were necessitated by the pandemic.

After three years of positive feedback, this very successful and popular pilot will now migrate to a permanent COVID-19 Self-Directed Clinical activity beginning July 1, 2023. The most notable change between the pilot and the permanent activity will be a requirement for both baseline and follow-up data for the submitted improvement measure. Based on Diplomate feedback, an updated list of COVID-related activities, relevant to the endemic stage of COVID, has been included in the PI template.

Anyone who has initiated a submission in the COVID-19 Self-Directed Clinical Pilot must complete their work by June 30, 12 pm ET. Any incomplete submissions will need to be restarted using the new COVID PI activity after that time.
