HealthCare Partners Rated A 'Top Performing California Physician Group' By IHA For the Fifth Straight Year

HealthCare Partners is being recognized as one of the top performing California physician groups by the Integrated Healthcare Association for the fifth straight year. HealthCare Partners is one of only four California Physicians groups in the greater Los Angeles area to receive this recognition.

(PRWEB) November 11, 2008 -- This is the fifth straight year that HealthCare Partners was named by the Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA) as one of the top performing California physician groups in the state. Every year, the IHA rates California physician groups in the key areas of clinical excellence, patient satisfaction, and use of information technology in support of patient care.

Furthermore, HealthCare Partners is one of only California physician groups in the entire Los Angeles area to receive such distinction. The other California physician groups named by IHA as top performers are Cedars-Sinai Medical Group, UCLA Medical Group, and the Southern California Permanente Medical Groups associated with Kaiser Permanente.

The IHA is a not-for-profit, statewide healthcare collaborative that seeks to improve the quality of healthcare provided by California physicians through special projects, policies, and education. IHA members include major California health insurance companies, California physician groups and health care systems, plus academic, consumer, purchaser, pharmaceutical, and technology organizations. Major health insurance companies in California use IHA's measures to reward top California physician groups for their adherence to these standards through their pay for performance incentive programs.
To determine their top scorers, IHA compared 230 California physician groups that represent 35,000 physicians statewide, who care for more than 11 million patients. HealthCare Partners scored in the top 20 percent of California physician groups on performance measures that include clinical quality measures (cancer screenings, immunizations, diabetes care, etc.), patient satisfaction measures (timely access to care, doctor-patient communication, etc.), and use of health information technology systems that support clinical decision making and promote evidence-based care.

"We are honored that HealthCare Partners remains recognized as a leading California physician group in showing the way to deliver quality healthcare. In the greater Los Angeles area over 500,000 patients-- many of them seniors with more complex health issues -- have entrusted HealthCare Partners' California physicians with their well-being, " said Dr. Robert Margolis, CEO and Managing Partner of HealthCare Partners. "We are proud of our exemplary clinicians and staff who, with passion and dedication, embrace our quality care initiatives and heartily commit themselves to doing what's right -- putting our patients first."
