Recertification

Continue your commitment to Excellence through Re-Certification

The QOPI Certification term is three years from the date your practice earned your QOPI Certification award. 

Please ensure that your practice participates in a QOPI Chart Abstraction round and acheives an eligible score prior to submitting an application for recertification. Your practice must apply 9-12 months in advance of your expiration date in order to maintain a continuous QOPI Certified designation.

This will allow your practice to apply for Certification in the QCP application period opening just after the abstraction period closes (spring or fall) and will ensure your practice achieves re-certification prior to the end of your current term. If your practice successfully achieves certification prior to your expiration date your term will be extended an additional three years.
