UMass Memorial Medical Group Named to Harvard Pilgrim Honor Roll
February 23, 2015
Distinction recognizes physician groups based on performance amongst nation’s best-
Worcester, Mass., - Doctors with UMass Memorial Medical Group (UMMMG) really made the grades in 2014 according to Harvard Pilgrim Health Care (Harvard Pilgrim). The nationally recognized health plan named UMMMG to its 2014 Physician Group Honor Roll based on the group’s performance in three key areas. UMMMG ranked amongst the top 25 percent of those measured nationally.
“This is an accomplishment all of our doctors should take pride in because it is a validation of their hard work and absolute commitment to putting our patients at the center of all we do,” said Stephen Tosi, MD, president of UMMMG. “It is also verification to our patients that they are getting the highest quality care possible. This distinction represents a great example of our axiom of the best place to give care and the best place to get care.”
Harvard Pilgrim uses a domain opportunity methodology which combines Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) measures for both adult and pediatric patients into 3 domains - acute care, chronic care and preventative care. The evaluation of each domain compares actual physician group performance to what the performance level at the national 75th and 90th percentiles should be. Physician groups earn points if their domain score is better than performance at the 75th percentile (1 point) or at the 90th percentile (2 points). UMMMG received a total of 5 points out of 6 possible.
With more than 1,100 physicians, the UMass Memorial Medical Group is one of the largest integrated multispecialty group medical practices on the entire East Coast.
