No. The ABFM requires an additional fee. Please consult the ABFM website for more information.
When the final step of Stage C has been completed in the online METRIC tool, you must complete the seven (7) evaluation questions to have your 20 CME credits applied. Your completion record will be electronically transmitted to the ABFM within one week of completion.
Diplomates who do not have continuity of care with patients (e.g., physicians working as hospitalists or in ERs) must complete a different type of Performance Improvement Activities through the American Board of Family Medicine. The AAFP suggests family physicians who have questions about this issue contact the ABFM.
Multi-physician offices may register for METRIC as a group. This allows the group to join efforts for improving patient care by concentrating on specific quality improvement interventions. The group may also choose to view a group comparison report in addition to the individual assessment report. In order for each physician to receive CME credits, he or she must separately enroll in and complete the METRIC program.
At this time, it is not possible to electronically upload or download data between METRIC and an EHR.
