Three Dignity Health physician organizations were recognized by IHA’s AMP Program

The Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA) honored three Dignity Health physician organizations for providing high-quality, affordable, patient-centered care in its 2019 Align. Measure. Perform. (AMP) program. The honorees are:

Excellence in Healthcare Award:
Mercy Medical Group/Dignity Health Medical Foundation
The Excellence in Healthcare Award represents the highest level of achievement, recognizing physician organizations that have succeeded in achieving strong quality results while effectively managing costs. To earn this award, physician organizations’ performance must rank in the top 50% for clinical quality, patient experience and cost for their commercial HMO population. Only 20 out of roughly 200 eligible physician organizations received this award.

Ronald P. Bangasser Memorial Award for Quality Improvement:
Central Valley Region: Dignity Health Medical Network – Central California
The Bangasser Award recognizes eight physician organizations — one from each of eight California regions — that demonstrated the greatest relative improvement in quality performance from measurement year 2018 to 2019.

Top 10% Patient Experience Domain:
Mercy Medical Group/Dignity Health Medical Foundation
To recognize the distinct contributions of each Triple Aim component in increasing and accelerating overall performance, IHA honors physician organizations with the highest levels of performance for each AMP Commercial HMO measurement domain. Specifically, this recognition acknowledges physician organizations that achieve the 90th percentile or above in one or more AMP domains: clinical quality, patient experience or total cost of care.

All three Dignity Health organizations were recognized Nov. 5 at the online 19th Annual IHA Stakeholders Meeting during an awards ceremony where virtual attendees included participating physician organizations, health plans and other stakeholders.
