Note: The data elements for the QI Project Registry are informed by and modified from the SQUIRE 2.0 Guidelines (Standards for Quality Improvement Reporting Excellence: revised publication guidelines form a detailed consensus Process.

Designed and operated by the Institute for Continuing Professional Development in Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (I-QIPS) at Baylor College of Medicine, the QI Project Registry is a web-based application designed to help health professionals across the College and its affiliated institutions to:
The QI Project Registry is open to all members of the Baylor College of Medicine community, including those associated with BCM-affiliated institutions (faculty, staff, trainees).
Note: The QI Project Registry is available now to interested users. The development of additional components and features is ongoing, and the information provided in the User Guide will be updated as new features and improvements are added.
Baylor College of Medicine is working with the American Board of Medical Specialties Portfolio Program™ (ABMS Portfolio Program) to sponsor activities that promote the quality and safety improvement aims across the College and its affiliated institutions, while also helping physicians earn maintenance of certification (MOC) credit from participating ABMS Member Boards. More specifically, with the College's awarded recognition as an ABMS Portfolio Program Sponsor, the I-QIPS manages all Sponsor-related activities in assisting eligible BCM and affiliated physicians in their efforts to earn Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Improvement in Medical Practice (Part IV) credit for approved improvement projects in which they are actively leading or participating.
As such, an upcoming feature of the QI Project Registry allows “eligible” physician users (those who demonstrate “meaningful participation” in approved projects) to submit their registered and “approved” projects (those that meet ABMS Standards and Guidelines and align with BCM institutional priorities) through the QI Project Registry for MOC Part IV credit consideration.
The standardized process prescribed throughout the QI Project Registry (including project feedback loops provided by designated I-QIPS QI Coaches) is designed to help ensure that all registered projects are conducted in alignment with ABMS Standards and Guidelines. Further, with the steps of the QI Project Registry interface informed by these Standards and Guidelines and ultimately integrated into a streamlined process (as prompted by the required fields/data elements of the Registry itself), physician users are able to prepare, conduct, and track their projects in such a way that, upon project completion, the projects should be near-ready for MOC Part IV credit submission.
