Latest News and Announcements

New eNewsletter Design! The first issue of The Buzz eNewsletter for 2014 introduces our new design. You can read the full eNewsletter from your email arriving later this month. The Buzz includes all the latest news for BCD users and potential subscribers. The March issue is also available from The Buzz tab towards the bottom of this page.
Radiology and Hospital Medicine Profiles: The reverification dates 3/15/2014 on Radiology profiles are now updated to 3/15/2015 if the diplomate is current with MOC. The reverification dates of 4/1/2014 on Internal Medicine Hospital Medicine Focused Practice profiles are also now updated to 4/1/2015 for diplomates who are current with MOC. If you have Alerts set up on one or more of these diplomates, you will receive a notification.
Pediatrics Updates: At the beginning of February we received reverification updates and recertifications for general and sub-certifications from The American Board of Pediatrics (ABP). Those updates may have triggered an Alert if you have notifications set up on BCD.

We received a new update that affects Meeting MOC Requirements status. ABP now reports Meeting MOC Requirements using the Yes/No model. This update may have triggered a second Alert on physicians that were included in both updates.

Reverification Dates: The American Board of Family Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics have an annual reverification date of February 15. The profiles of physicians who are current with MOC now display a 2/15/15 reverification date. If they are not current with MOC the profile will display NOT CERTIFIED. These changes will trigger alerts if you have a notification set up in BCD. For more information on MOC reference the FAQs, charts on the Resources page and archived issues of The Buzz.
