Maintenance of Certification for Medical Physics

MOC Team Tracker

Last verified on November 12, 2019
 
 
MOC Team Tracker allows organizations to pay the MOC Annual Fee and view their physicians' and/or physicists' MOC status. This online tool is available to diplomates in all ABR disciplines—diagnostic radiology and subspecialties, interventional radiology, radiation oncology, and medical physics. Its use is optional for each diplomate, and not all members of a group are required to participate.
 
Group practices (defined as two or more ABR diplomates) will designate a single Organization Manager who will be responsible for overseeing the program. To ensure that the system structure is scalable for groups of various sizes, the Organization Manager will be authorized to appoint one or more Group Practice Administrators (GPAs).
 
Once added to MOC Team Tracker (upon organization's application or when added by the organization in myABR), the ABR diplomate will be invited to participate in MOC Team Tracker and must opt in. Diplomates can choose to opt-out at any time. Although MOC Team Tracker allows the organization to view the diplomate's MOC status and pay annual fees, the diplomate is still primarily responsible for ensuring his/her MOC requirements are met each year.  
 

How Does it Work?

 
 
Primary Group Contact (PCG)
This person will be the primary contact for the organization and responsible for overseeing MOC Team Tracker, the staff, and diplomates enrolled.
 
Organizational Manager (OM)
This person is responsible for adding Group Practice Administrator(s) (GPAs) for the practice. Larger practices find it beneficial to have multiple GPAs, assigning groups of physicians to each GPA for managing. In smaller practices, it may be sufficient for the OM to be one of, or the only GPA for the organization.
 
Group Practice Administrator (GPA)
Each GPA will have an individual user name and password that allows the GPA to log in to the MOC Team Tracker system at https://myabr.theabr.org/login. Upon login, the GPA will be able to view a list of the Participating Diplomates assigned to him/her. In addition to paying member's Annual Fees, the GPA will be allowed to track each individual member's progress in meeting MOC requirements which can be used to issue reminders to participants who fall behind, thus averting potentially inconvenient situations at a later date.
 
Each ABR Diplomate enrolled in MOC Team Tracker must personally sign in to his or her myABR account at least once yearly to verify that attestations and updates have been entered and that all information is correct. Please note that lifetime certificate holders who are not participating in MOC must first enroll before they can use MOC Team Tracker. For more information, call (520) 790-2900 or email adminsupport@theabr.org.
 
 
 

How Does a Group Get Started?

 
  1. First, the primary group contact should email MOC Team Tracker support at adminsupport@theabr.org to notify the ABR that the group wants to participate.
  2. MOC Team Tracker support will send a link to the application form, which the primary group contact will fill out and submit to the ABR, along with a signed agreement. During the application process, the primary group contact will be asked to assign an Organization Manager, as well as upload a list of eligible participants. Once you have submitted the application, please allow five business days for ABR staff to set up your MOC Team Tracker account.
  3. MOC Team Tracker support will create an account for the group and will add ABR diplomates (from the list of eligible participants) to the account. All ABR diplomates in the group's account will receive an email with instructions on how to opt in to MOC Team Tracker on myABR.
  4. The appointed Organization Manager will receive an email with log-in instructions and information about how to set up one or more Group Practice Administrators (GPAs).
  5. After logging on to MOC Team Tracker, the Organization Manager will add one or more GPAs.
  6. Each designated GPA will receive an email with instructions on how to log in to MOC Team Tracker.
  7. The Organization Manager will assign ABR diplomates to each designated GPA.
  8. After each ABR diplomate has opted in and has been assigned to a designated GPA, he or she may log in and begin managing the ABR diplomate's MOC activities.
 
 

Frequently Asked Questions

 
  • Our Primary Group Contact (PCG) or Organizational Manager (OM) has changed. How do we update the ABR?
    Email adminsupport@theabr.org with the new staff members full name and date of birth. If the PCG has changed, the OM should request the update. If the OM has changed, the PCG should request the update.
  • An ABR diplomate has joined/left our organization, how do we update our Team Tracker Account?
    The Organizational Manager (OM) or Group Practice Administrator (GPA) has access to add/remove diplomates. Once logged into myABR, click the "Show Diplomates" button next to the GPA to whom the diplomate should be added/removed.
    • To remove a diplomate, click the "Opt Out" button next to the diplomate's name. Additionally, the diplomate may choose to "Opt Out" via his/her personal myABR account at any time.
    • To add a new diplomate, click the "Add New Diplomate" button. You can search by diplomate name, or ABR ID. Once located, click the "Add to Practice" button. This will send an email to the diplomate asking them to Opt In to participating in MOC Team Tracker. Once added, you will need to assign the diplomate to a GPA. The diplomate will appear on the GPA's list of physicians as "Awaiting Participation." Once the diplomate opts in, the GPA will have access to their MOC status and to make a payment.
      • Please note, if the physician is already participating in MOC Team Tracker with another organization, a pop-up will advise you of this and not allow you to add/him or her. The diplomate must log-in to his/her myABR account and choose to opt out of MOC Team Tracker with the previous organization before you can add him/her to your organization.
  • How can I add/remove a GPA?
    Only the Organizational Manager (OM) can add/remove GPAs. Once logged into myABR, on the OM home page:
    • To remove a current GPA, click the "Delete" button next to the GPA's name. Once removed, the diplomates previously assigned to that GPA will appear on the "Unassigned Diplomates" list. You must re-assign them to a current GPA.
    • To add a GPA, click the "Add New GPA" button. If the new GPA already has an ABR ID (GPA for another organization or is ABR certified), search by ABR ID or name and choose "Add to Organization." If the new GPA has never been assigned an ABR ID, choose "Add New." You will need the GPA's full name, date of birth and email address, choose "Add GPA."
    The GPA will now appear under the Group Practice Administrators list. You can unassign/assign diplomates between GPAs as you prefer.
  • Can an ABR Diplomate serve as a Primary Group Contact (PCG), Organizational Manager (OM) and/or Group Practice Administrator (GPA)?
    Yes, diplomates can serve in any or all of these roles for the organization. When adding a diplomate as a GPA, please add him/her using their ABR ID instead of creating a new one (see above).
  • When are MOC Annual Fees due, and how can I pay them for our diplomates?
    MOC Annual Fees are billed January 3 (or the next business day) each year and are due March 1. Group Practice Administrators have a "Payments" menu in myABR. The Payments page will display all diplomates with fees due. Payments are submitted in myABR via credit card or e-check.
