TRANSITIONS OF CARE CERTIFICATIONIntroducing the First International Transitions of Care Certification
Move Quality Care Forward!
Certification validates your advanced skills and expertise to manage and lead in today’s complex health care environment
The American Board of Quality Assurance and Utilization Review Physicians (ABQAURP) has added Transitions of Care to its Health Care Quality and Management (HCQM) Certification.
In an era of accountability, HCQM board certification demonstrates that Diplomates have the practical knowledge and the tools that can reduce medical errors, ensure patient safety, eliminate wasteful spending and unnecessary services, while avoiding potentially harmful delays in care. Certification demonstrates to internal and external entities that you, your group practice, or hospital is accountable. The result is a safer, more efficient, and cost-effective system that better satisfies the needs of patients, providers, purchasers, and payers. The Transitions of Care Sub-Specialty has been incorporated as a vital component of the Health Care Quality and Management board certification.
As we accept the challenge to develop a health care delivery system that advances the quality and the efficiency of health care in a manner that is cost-efficient, we face not only tremendous opportunities, but also a great urgency for broad transformation.
The delivery of health care services is sometimes disorganized and haphazard with patients shuffled from one environment or provider of care to another with little advocacy, no established transitional care plan, and absolutely no idea that it should not be that way. Health care consumers frequently move from door to door; episode of care to episode of care without a champion to coordinate that care. This often prompts a downward trajectory of their health status that can not only prompt readmissions to an acute care facility, but also cause physical, emotional, and financial compromise that may negatively impact the quality of the patient’s life.
Certification in HCQM with sub-specialty accreditation in Transitions of Care puts you on the leading edge in today’s competitive job market.
