The Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA) announced the winners of its annual Excellence in Healthcare Award, California's top honor for physician organizations, including Hoag Medical Group. The award recognizes physician organizations that achieve top marks on quality and patient experience measures while managing costs. To earn this recognition, physician organizations must perform in the top 50% on clinical quality, patient experience and total cost of care. Only 30 of nearly 200 participating physician organizations statewide attained Excellence in Healthcare Award performance standards this year. IHA President and CEO Jeff Rideout, MD, commended the top performers, saying, “IHA is proud to recognize physician organizations that are truly leading the way to high-quality, affordable, patient-centered care.”
