St. Jude Affiliated Physicians Receives Prestigious Quality Award from IHA

The Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA), a statewide leadership group that promotes quality improvement, accountability, and affordability of health care in California, recently honored St. Jude Affiliated Physicians (SJAP) as a most improved physician organization.

The IHA quality awards are based on performance in three Pay for Performance (P4P) quality measurement areas: meaningful use of health information technology, patient experience and clinical measures that include priority conditions such as cardiovascular, diabetes, musculoskeletal, respiratory and prevention. Physician groups whose overall performance score surpassed a comprehensive statewide threshold based on the top 25 percent score for each P4P quality measure are selected for recognition as top Quality Performers.

As a Most Improved award winner, SJAP's scores had improved the most over the previous year and as such were recognized with the Ronald P. Bangasser, MD, Memorial Award for Quality Improvement. Out of nearly 200 physician organizations, only one was selected from each region in California that demonstrated the most quality improvement from 2011 to 2012, which included SJAP for Orange County.

"St. Jude Affiliated Physicians are dedicated to raising the bar on performance improvement," said CR Burke, president and CEO, Heritage. "We are honored and proud to be an award winner this year. It demonstrates the continued commitment of our physicians and staff to provide exceptional care, and the many outstanding new programs and quality measures we've implemented to improve the health care experience."
