Practice Monitoring Program
A Longer-Term Look…
Medical licensing boards often order CPEP’s Practice Monitoring Program when they are concerned about the ongoing quality of care a licensee provides. This program provides ongoing practice monitoring for healthcare professionals that can include regular chart reviews by qualified physicians.
The program is tailored to meet specific board requirements for individual licensees. As a result, participants may be required to enroll:
- Following completion of CPEP’s Competence Assessment and Educational Intervention Program,
- As a stand-alone activity without a prior assessment
To enroll, call 303-577-3232 and speak with a Practice Monitor Specialist.
What You Need to Know
What are the benefits of the Practice Monitoring Program?
- Fairness: CPEP and its reviewers are free of bias, ensuring fairness to the licensee and credibility to the referring organization
- Patient protection: The Practice Monitoring Program helps boards fulfill their obligation to protecting the public by confirming that the care licensees provide meets acceptable standards of practice based on chart reviews
What services are included?
- CPEP recruits a practice monitor who best suits the participant’s needs (may be subject to referring organization’s approval)
- Regular chart reviews that start on a monthly basis and progress to quarterly review
- Submission of detailed reports to the referring organization and the participant, generally on a quarterly basis
- The reports provide a description and an analysis of the reviewed cases and the Consultant’s opinion rating the quality of care
How does the Practice Monitoring Program differ from assessment and education?
The Practice Monitoring Program does not assess the underlying knowledge and skills of a participant and is not intended to be a source of remedial education. Rather, the role of the practice monitor is to simply confirm whether or not the care delivered by a licensee is at or above the accepted standard of practice based on chart reviews.
Where does the monitoring take place?
Participants continue to practice in their communities while enrolled in the Practice Monitoring Program.
How long does it take to complete the program?
While each case is unique, the duration is usually 12 to 18 months. Monitoring ends when the referring Board is satisfied that the licensee’s practice consistently meets acceptable standards of care.
