Maintenance of Certification is a specific challenge for medical staff professionals in tracking on-going certification. In an effort to keep accurate records on all provider board certifications, MPR will use CertiFacts for primary source verification of all ABMS Board Certification and perform the following:
- For providers with a lifetime board certification with no “end” date, we will use February 15th as the expiration to check the board certification (via CertiFacts) for renewals.
- For providers with a Maintenance of Certification (MOC) we will use the re-verification date as the expiration to check the board certification for renewals.
- For providers with a time limited certification, we will use the expiration date listed on the board certification verification.
This approach should assure we are routinely aware of all board certification expirations and afford us the opportunity to meet our client needs in supplying the most current document for the credential file.
