Criterion 28: The provider collaborates with other organizations to more effectively address population health issues.
Overview of Criterion 28 from the ACCME Menu of Criteria for Accreditation with Commendation by Dr. Graham McMahon.
>>McMAHON: Engaging in the community requires us to develop relationships with that community, and ultimately that's likely to be enhanced if you can form relationships with collaborators, whether it's your Public Health Department, or whether it's a governmental agency, or a community-based group, or a patient group. Relationships with these organizations can help enhance the effectiveness of your CME program, and address the community and population health issues. This criteria rewards those providers who ultimately form relationships that make a difference in your ability to have an impact in the communities that you serve.
