2022 Health Care Quality and Management Certification (HCQM®) Exam Application Deadline Extended to June 30

The American Board of Quality Assurance and Utilization Review Physicians (ABQAURP) Provides a Certification to Validate and Differentiate Today’s Health Care Quality and Safety Professionals

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.

Realizing what a hectic time it is for health care professionals around the world, ABQAURP strives to make certification accessible, therefore the HCQM Application deadline has been extended to June 30, 2022. ABQAURP humbly thanks you for your tireless efforts during this unprecedented time. The 2022 HCQM Exam will be administered from June 1 through September 30, 2022.

ABQAURP continues to work with Prometric on test development and delivery for its HCQM Certification Exam. The exam is provided through Prometric’s global test center network and remotely via ProProctor™. The ProProctor remote testing platform allows candidates to test anywhere, at any time.

Dr. Nick Paslidis, ABQAURP Chairman of the Board, states, “Physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals throughout the world are 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.”
