Requirements for Verification
Diplomates engaged in APP are required to specify an independent verifier of each APP activity. The verifier must be someone with oversight or knowledge of practice performance and would likely be one of the following:
- Hospital board chair or other member of the board
- Department chair
- Chief of staff
- Medical Director
- Practice administrator in non-hospital settings
Ten percent (10%) of activities will be randomly selected for verification. Verifiers will be asked to affirm that all of ABEM’s requirements have been met. Completion of the ABMS Patient Safety Improvement Program does not require a verifier.
