ABMS Maintenance of Certification (MOC®), is the means to keep that physician database current.
Meet Phynd Technologies, Inc., a partnership of ABMS Solutions, LLC, Epic Systems Corporation, Amazon Web Services, Drupal, and the non-profit Healthwise, a network of databases used by healthcare organizations to control costs while providing "deeper" patient and consumer engagement with information that they claim, "saves lives."
"Inaccurate provider information puts care, revenue, and reputation at risk.And let's not forget:
There is no single source of truth, until Phynd.
Phynd serves as the single source for high-quality provider information:
who they are
where they work
what they do
what qualifications they have."
"Referring providers are important.MOC® is not about physicians' education, skill, expertise, or knowledge. MOC® is just physician data, credentialed or not, compiled, reformulated, and for sale to the highest bidder.
They’re worth $1 million a year or more to your health system.
You have 10 times as many referring providers as credentialed. Or more.
Your referring provider population is growing much faster than your credentialed population."
All done with the blessing and support of our equally-conflicted medical subspecialty societies.
