ABPS Physician Board Certification Now Listed on Healthgrades.com

HealthgradesPhysician board certification through Member Boards of the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS) is now listed on the physician referral website, Healthgrades.com. With more than 30 million patients conducting research on providers listed on Healthgrades.com each month, it is crucial that all of a physician’s training, qualifications and areas of expertise are listed in detail. Physicians who hope to compete in an increasingly complex medical marketplace must keep their Healthgrades profiles up to date, and ABPS Diplomates whose certification is not listed can add it to their profiles through the website’s physician portal at healthgrades.com/update/abps.

In addition to ABPS physician board certification, there are dozens of details that help differentiate physicians on the Healthgrades.com site, including:

  • Specialties
  • Conditions treated
  • Treatment philosophy
  • Procedures performed
  • Experience
  • Education
  • Hospital affiliation(s)
  • Patient satisfaction ratings
  • Malpractice filings or sanctions (if any)

Healthgrades.com is quickly becoming one of the most effective tools for patient referrals, thanks in part to the in-depth data available on each physician. Patients who find outdated information about a physician are less likely to click through to request an appointment. Conversely, patients who see ABPS physician board certification confirmation on Healthgrades.com know that the specialist has proven that he or she possesses the knowledge and experience to provide the best patient care available.

Patient Care Is Our Priority

Medical organizations throughout North America understand that our rigorous certification standards prove that ABPS Diplomates are capable of delivering the best patient care possible.

The American Board of Physician Specialties has provided me with the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of internal medicine through board certification. As a hospitalist, board certification is an expected credential, and hospitals recognize the American Board of Physician Specialties (ABPS) as one of the three standard credentialling bodies for Internal Medicine. Additionally, the ABPS has helped me develop leadership skills as a Board member and Committee Chairperson. ABPS has also helped me sharpen critical thinking skills as a test question developer and reviewer. The Allopathic (MD) and Osteopathic (DO) physicians in the ABPS are lifelong learners and frequently pursue multiple board certifications. I enjoy the camaraderie of my peers in ABPS.

When I think historically, advancement in medicine and patient safety and care has been driven by the diversity of people and scientific thought. That’s what I found at the ABPS and more. For over 60 years that is just who we are. I found a physician certifying body that provides a choice and voice to all physicians ensuring that patients are always placed first.

When I decided to pursue a full time role as a physician executive it was important to me to obtain additional professional training, education and work experience. Board certification through the ABPS in Administrative Medicine is validation of my efforts and a demonstration of dedication to professional development. We need more physicians to become full time health care executives, knowing there is a board certification option in Administrative Medicine encourages physicians to take the leap from full time clinical practice to healthcare organizational leadership.
