COVID-19 Healthcare Delivery and Transformation Project
This opportunity will be open through November 2022. If you need credit recognized in 2021, please submit your attestation by December 10, 2021 to guarantee it is recognized by year end.
Our practice changes and learnings from coronavirus are unprecedented. It’s important to record and share them, as well as receive credit for any improvements and innovations we developed. COVID-19 Healthcare Delivery and Transformation is a new project avenue supported by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and Advocate Aurora Health. It maximizes the contributions of our health care providers by awarding Maintenance of Certification (MOC) – ABMS Part IV or National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) PI-CME credits for these accomplishments.
This opportunity is available for all employed providers at Advocate Aurora Health.
