Practice Improvement Modules (PIM)


Practice improvement modules (PIMs) allow physicians to practice reviewing patient data and develop a quality improvement (QI) plan for their practice. ASN launched the Dialysis Practice Improvement Module (DPIM) in 2011 and the Kidney Transplantation Practice Improvement Module (KTPIM) in 2014. With the changes in ABIM's MOC program, participation and interest in ASN's PIMs declined significantly. Therefore, ASN decided to redirect our resources to activities that will benefit a greater number of our members and learners. New participants to ASN PIMs will not be accepted after December 31, 2015. Existing participants will need to complete their ASN PIMs by June 30, 2016.
