Take a Test Drive
Contact METRIC staff to arrange a preview any or all of the METRIC modules before you enroll.
Select Your Module(s)
Your program may choose to complete one module together, or complete multiple modules in smaller sub-teams. For example, a project group with 12 participants 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.
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.
Faculty members who desire to apply the CME credit earned through METRIC to their Performance Improvement Activities requirement must enter at least ten charts, regardless of the residency program minimum.
Choose Your Reports
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:
Custom group reports list each participant of the residency program project group and the stage of the METRIC module each participant has completed may be provided upon request. For additional report options, contact the METRIC staff by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (800) 274-2237.
Get the Documentation Needed for the ACGME
Residents can provide documentation demonstrating their development of the ACGME competency in practice-based learning and improvement by printing each step of the METRIC program, including baseline and follow up practice assessment questionnaire responses, performance measure results and their action plan.
