METRIC offers residents and faculty a structured, valuable way to participate in and document the ACGME competency in practice-based learning and improvement. In addition, participating faculty members may earn 20 AAFP Prescribed credits and satisfy the ABFM's MC-FP Part IV requirement for Maintenance of Certification.
Note: Only one AAFP nonmember faculty for every ten (10) residents will be at no charge. Additional nonmember faculty will be charged $125. All nonmember residents will be charged $125.
Your program may choose to complete one module together, or complete multiple modules in smaller sub-teams. For example, a project group with 12 particpants could decide to have three sub-teams of four complete three different modules, or sub-teams of four complete three different modules. Individual physicians may also choose an intervention to complete alone and still remain a part of the group.
Asthma accounts for more than 10.5 million office visits each year. Identify changes to improve the lives of your asthma patients and your practice with this module.

While METRIC modules only require 10-15 patient charts per module, each participant may enter up to 50 patient charts during the baseline assessment (Stage A) and another 50 patient charts during the reassessment (Stage C) , for a total of up to 100 patient charts. Simply note the number of charts your group would like to enter on your Group Enrollment Form.
If each group member is not able to enter ten charts, it is essential to determine how many charts can be entered and to indicate that number on the enrollment form. The lowest number of charts per resident must be communicated to METRIC staff on the group enrollment form. For example, if one resident can enter 11 charts, another resident can enter nine charts, and another resident can enter seven charts. It is essential that the minimum chart review number be set to seven charts per participant.
Faculty members who desire to apply the CME credit earned through METRIC to their MC-FP Part IV Maintenance of Certification requirement must enter at least ten charts, regardless of the residency program minimum.
Avoid Reset Fees: Review and complete each step of the module before moving forward. Failure to fully complete a step before continuing will interrupt your reporting and require a reset of your module. A reset, rollback, or edit to your module incurs a $150 charge, due upon request.
Faculty or quality improvement initiative leaders can easily monitor the progress of the group in accomplishing each step in the program through standard tracking reports.
The standard group tracking report is a list of all physicians in the group along with a date stamp of each step in the METRIC module they completed, including:
