HCQM Certified Diplomate

HCQM Certification is the only health care quality and management certification administered through the National Board of Medical Examiners® (NBME®).

The importance of health care quality and patient safety continues to be at the forefront of providing medical care. It is essential that health care providers and administrators demonstrate their expertise and commitment to health care quality and safety. According to ABQAURP Chairman of the Board, Dr. Arthur Broder, “Employers adopting HCQM Certification and education for their medical staff allows them to say to outside interests that they have the highest possible standards for their medical team by certifying them through an independent, non-profit organization (ABQAURP) that is dedicated to ensuring health care quality and management.”

In addition to concerns about patient safety, inappropriate services, and unnecessary readmissions, the rising costs of health care and its impact on families and business all solidify the need for Health Care Quality and Management (HCQM) Certification.

HCQM-certified health care leaders effectively address the need for accountability by demonstrating an understanding of quality techniques and tools to reduce medical errors, ensure patient safety, eliminate waste and unnecessary services, and avoid potentially harmful delays in care.

How do health care professionals validate expertise in today's highly competitive health care environment?

Validate your expertise with a certification that demonstrates knowledge and commitment to safety, health care quality, and effective care. HCQM Certification is a definitive benchmark of achievement signifying a higher level of proficiency; and is the only health care quality and management certification administered through the National Board of Medical Examiners® (NBME®).

Teri Treiger, RN-BC, CHCQM-CM, CCM, ABQAURP Diplomate and Principal at Ascent Care Management, explains, “It is essential that health care professionals take a broad view of health care delivery. The ABQAURP CHCQM credential represents a pledge to health care quality first and foremost. The individual that successfully undergoes the rigorous application and testing process personifies the ‘best in class’ mentality that is so desperately needed to meet the challenges presented by the business of health care today.”

ABQAURP continues to deliver the highest quality certification process, bringing examinees a certification based on definable standards upheld by knowledgeable experts.

Dr. Genoveva Prieto, ABQAURP Diplomate and practicing Neonatologist, further supports this stating, "There is a sense of trust from other healthcare professionals...it means the qualification obtained adheres to the standards and ethics of a professional board. Certification with ABQAURP exemplifies expertise, dedication and commitment to quality and safety. I am honored to be a Diplomate of this prestigious organization."

  • Transitions of Care
