Practice Improvement Modules

The AGA Digestive Health Recognition Program™ (DHRP™) contains the measures and capabilities to support the completion of a Self-Directed Practice Improvement Module (PIM) to meet American Board of Internal Medicine Maintenance of Certification requirements.

Using a simple data collection tool and quality measure reporting system, you can receive the quality measure results needed to complete a PIM for colorectal cancer (CRC) screening and surveillance, hepatitis C virus (HCV) or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Once your initial results have been measured, select three measures to build a practice improvement plan for, and use the ABIM's self-directed PIM wizard to complete your action plan. Once you have implemented the plan, remeasure your performance using DHRP, and report the results to ABIM.
