Component 4: Practice Performance Assessment & Improvement


Component 4 requires physicians to engage in continuous quality improvement activities. To fulfill the Component 4 requirement, you must attest to your participation in a Quality Improvement Activity in your practice, such as activities from the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) track offered through CMS Quality Payment Program. Diplomates are required to complete and submit a Quality Improvement Activity attestation form once every three-year OCC cycle.

To learn more about accepted quality improvement activities and to submit a quality improvement attestation, visit your AOA Physician Portal and select the OCC tile.

Non-clinical physicians are required to complete all components of OCC. If you are a non-clinical physician, please complete the online attestation form to notify AOBD that you are not in active clinical practice.
