While this work is difficult, it is an important part of health care reform and it proves that we can reduce costs without compromising the high quality care all of our patients receive at Marshfield Clinic," said Karl Ulrich, M.D., M.M.M., Marshfield Clinic president and chief executive officer.

In this fifth performance year, Marshfield Clinic has over 35,000 people assigned by CMS, the largest group of beneficiaries in the project, with an overall total of about 225,000 participants.

"We're pleased that the care delivery approach Marshfield Clinic instituted has been successful in providing quality care to patients as well as savings to CMS in all five years of the project," said Marilyn A. Follen, R.N., M.S.N., administrator, Institute for Quality, Innovation & Patient Safety, Marshfield Clinic. "The outstanding efforts of our physicians and staff during the fifth performance year allowed Marshfield Clinic to improve the efficiency of care delivery and to exceed 98 percent of the quality measures set by CMS. This resulted in more than $34.5 million in savings to CMS in the fifth year. These results speak well for the dedication and hard work of all Clinic physicians and staff members."

CMS Physician Group Practice Demonstration Project results being reported measure Year 5 - April 1, 2009, to March 31, 2010. In the fifth year, participating large group practices reported 32 measures for diabetes, congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, hypertension and cancer screening.
