Low-Cost, High-Value CME for Chapter Members
In addition to the overall benefit to your chapter, each chapter member can benefit directly from completing a METRIC module with your group.
Build Your Project Group
Select Your Module(s)
Chapter groups may choose to complete one module together, or complete multiple modules in smaller sub-teams. For example, a chapter group with 12 participants could decide to have three sub-teams of four complete three different modules or sub-teams of three complete four different modules. Individual physicians may also choose an intervention to complete alone and still remain a part of the group.
Take a Test Drive
Contact METRIC staff to arrange a preview of any or all of the METRIC modules before you enroll.
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.
Up to one-third of your adult patients may be experiencing hypertension. Identify changes that can improve the lives of your patients and your practice through this module.
Set Your Scope
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.
Choose Your Reports
Quality improvement initiative leaders can easily monitor the progress of the group throughout each stage of the program utilizing standard and customized reports.
The standard group tracking report includes a list of all physicians in the group, along with a date stamp for each stage in the METRIC module completed. View a sample standard group tracking report.
Results for your quality improvement initiative group can be viewed online within the METRIC program, or by requesting specific data reports. For customized report options, contact METRIC staff by email at email@example.com or by calling (800) 274-2237.
