PQF Transference of Program to Inteleos
As of September 9, 2022, we are proud to
that we have begun the process of transferring our FMC program to Inteleos as part of our strategic plan to grow and strengthen credentialing
resources to continually enhance the quality of obstetrical medical services.
Inteleos is a non-profit credentialing organization chosen from a thorough RFP and review process completed earlier this year to further expand and
strengthen the FMC credentialing program. All benefits and fees remain the same at this time and all FMC information is still available on this page.
For more information about Inteleos, go to https://www.inteleos.org
Do you have suggestions or feedback about our on-line exam or credentialing information site? We will share your feedback with Inteleos as they build
the on-line site for FMC. Send your suggestions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Special thanks to the FMC Task Force and item writers who created our unique Fetal Monitoring Credentialing examination.
Demonstrate knowledge and judgment
of fetal heart rate monitoring principles
defined by national consensus
The Perinatal Quality Foundation (perinatalquality.org) is an independent, non-profit foundation whose mission is to improve the quality of obstetrical
services in the United States.
The Perinatal Quality Foundation provides a Fetal Monitoring Credentialing (FMC) examination, developed by experts in the field that will be available
to physicians, nurse practitioners, midwives, nurses, and other perinatal clinicians who are involved in the management of labor and delivery patients.
In addition to using recommended NICHD nomenclature and offering traditional knowledge-based questions, the FMC also assesses provider judgment by using
the script concordance test, an evidence-based tool that measures mental processes in uncertain clinical situations.
The Perinatal Quality Foundation FMC tool is intended to be adjunct to other educational programs in that FMC provides a mechanism to measure provider
proficiency, to determine if learning has occurred, and to effect change.
C-FMC is the designation for an obstetrical nurse, nurse midwife, or obstetrician who has earned credentialing in electronic fetal monitoring from Perinatal Quality Foundation.
We are happy to report that successful completion of the FMC examination has been accepted by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) for Maintenance of
Certification (MOC) Part IV: Improvement in Medical Practice.
