Sansum Clinic Receives ‘Most Improved’ Award from Integrated Healthcare Association

On Sept. 23, Sansum Clinic was honored at the 2014 Annual Pay for Performance (P4P) Stakeholders Meeting as Most Improved by the Integrated Healthcare Association.

The Integrated Healthcare Association is a statewide leadership group that promotes quality improvement, accountability and affordability of health care in California. The P4P program is the largest nongovernmental physician incentive program in the United States, which measures and promotes improved quality among healthcare providers in California.

Awards are based on performance in three P4P quality measurement areas: meaningful use of health information technology, patient experience and clinical quality measures that include priority conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, musculoskeletal and respiratory diseases and prevention.

In addition to celebrating the top performers, IHA honored the physician organizations that demonstrated the most quality improvement from 2012 to 2013, which included Sansum Clinic for the second consecutive year.

“Sansum Clinic strives to provide our patients with the highest quality healthcare, along with an enhanced patient experience,” said Marjorie Newman, M.D., assistant medical director of Sansum Clinic. "This award recognizes the medical expertise and compassionate care that our staff and clinicians provide each day to ensure patients in our community continue to choose Sansum Clinic for their care."

“Most Improved” award winners are determined by calculating the relative improvement for each physician organization on the overall composite score for this year compared to the overall composite score for last year. The physician organization in each of the eight P4P regions that has the highest relative improvement score for overall quality performance — and does not decrease performance in any quality measurement domain — is recognized as the most improved group in that region.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
