Asthma accounts for more than 10.5 million office visits every year. By 2025, the number of people with asthma will grow to more than 100 million. Family physicians know that asthma can become a burden for patients and their families. Often, it seems that the bulk of the visits with patients who have asthma and parents of children who have asthma are spent urging them to make lifestyle changes, including taking medications that will result in improved outcomes and, in turn, help them feel better. But what changes can you make in your practice to improve outcomes? METRIC® aims to help you identify changes—big or small—in your practice that will make life better for you and your patients who have asthma.
Identify changes to improve the lives of your asthma patients, and your practice, with this METRIC asthma module that takes you step by step through a performance improvement project aimed at improving patient asthma care. This program uses your own patient data to evaluate your current quality of patient care and to compare with your peers. It helps you develop an action plan and offers tips, templates and resources to implement that plan, then measures the improvement to patient outcomes. Access to this online performance improvement program is available from any computer and allows you to work individually at your own pace or with other physicians in a group. The program can be used in large quality improvement initiatives across multiple practice sites and METRIC program staff is available to create group data reports and provide other administrative group needs.
METRIC is also a valuable tool for residency program tracking and quality improvement, eliminating project design time on your part. This program builds critical skills in practice-based learning and improvement, an ACGME requirement for residency programs.
This METRIC module will take a minimum of three months to complete. To meet the Maintenance of Certification Part IV (MC-FP Part IV) requirement, it must be completed within 12 months.
