Health Care Quality and Management

HCQM Certified

We encourage health care professionals worldwide to be recognized for their commitment to value-driven, quality care by earning the CHCQM (Certified in Health Care Quality Management) credential.

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. 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.

ABQAURP has chosen Prometric as its new test development and delivery partner for its HCQM Certification Exam. Prometric will work with ABQAURP to deliver secure, high-quality exams to health care professionals through Prometric’s global test center network and remote assessment platform, ProProctor™.

Realizing what a hectic time it is for health care professionals around the world, ABQAURP strives to make certification accessible, therefore the early registration deadline and the extra savings promotion have been extended through February 15, 2021, to allow medical professionals time to concentrate on what's important now - taking care of family, patients, and staff. ABQAURP humbly thanks you for your tireless efforts during this unprecedented time. Additionally, the 2021 HCQM Exam will be administered from June 1 through September 30, 2021. The ProProctor remote testing platform allows candidates to test anywhere, at any time.

“We are excited to work with Prometric to provide the exam globally, with the added convenience of remote testing with ProProctor,” said Dr. Nick Paslidis, ABQAURP Chairman of the Board. “Physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals throughout the world are now able to sit for ABQAURP’s HCQM Certification Examination. We encourage health care professionals worldwide to be recognized for their commitment to value-driven, quality care by earning the CHCQM® (Certified in Health Care Quality Management) credential.”
