Sharp HealthCare Medical Groups Recognized for "Elite" Care

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sharp HealthCare's affiliated medical groups -- Sharp Rees-Stealy and Sharp Community Medical Group -- were awarded Elite Status, the highest possible designation for quality care given by the California Association of Physician Groups (CAPG) as part of its 2011 Standards of Excellence program. CAPG is one of the nation's largest professional organizations of managed care physician groups.

"We are grateful to be recognized for the exceptional services and care we provide our patients every day," said Mike Murphy, the president and CEO of Sharp HealthCare. "Our affiliated doctors, nurses, staff and volunteers are on a journey to make health care better for our patients and their families. It's what we call The Sharp Experience -- the combination of advanced technology, clinical excellence and personalized care."

The Standards of Excellence program recognizes best practices among its member groups and measures their ability to support care delivery in four domains that influence patient care: care management, health information technology, accountability and transparency and patient-centered care. CAPG identified these criteria as a roadmap for the country to follow as health care reform embraces Accountable Care Organizations (ACO). Under the ACO model, hospital and physician networks would be responsible for the quality of care delivered to patients and would receive bonuses for providing high-quality, low-cost care. Of the 76 medical groups surveyed, only 26 were awarded the top Elite status. Sharp Rees-Stealy and Sharp Community Medical Group are the only groups recognized with this distinction in San Diego.
