Monroe County Medical Society joins national portfolio program

The Monroe County Medical Society (MCMS) has joined the American Board of Medical Specialties’ (ABMS) Multi-specialty Portfolio Program. The program, functioning in the quality collaborative segment of the Society, will assist the organization in providing basic guidelines for clinical care across the region.

Based in Rochester, the Monroe County Medical Society covers Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Steuben, Seneca, Wayne and Yates counties, advocating for betterment of health care in the region.

“As an ABMS Portfolio Program Sponsor, MCMS will ensure that we provide meaningful QI [quality improvement] project opportunities to the physicians in our region, bringing expertise of the Quality Collaborative and physician leadership oversight to the program,” said Christopher Bell, executive director of MCMS, in a statement. “We will encourage physicians to be innovative in their project designs or participate in projects developed within the Quality Collaborative and will welcome their feedback during the process to ensure they have input throughout it.”

In the early hours of the program, the MCMS expects 250 primary care physicians to participate. The result, as Bell stated, is intended to be a push for better quality control for health care in the region.

“MCMS’ participation in the Portfolio Program provides additional recognition of the valuable efforts these physicians and their teams are undertaking to improve the care of not only their current patient population, but through their various collaborations, even more patients and families throughout the state,” said David Price, executive director of the Portfolio Program.

Utilized nationwide, the Portfolio Program, to date, has initiated over 2,000 improvement efforts to health care systems.
