HealthTexas Wins Prestigious AMGA Award in 2012
HealthTexas Provider Network has been named a 2012 American Medical Group Association (AMGA) Acclaim Award Honoree. The award, granted through AMGA’s philanthropic arm, the American MedicalGroup Foundation, was presented in September at AMGA’s Institute for Quality Leadership Annual Conference in Las Vegas. AMGA’s prestigious Acclaim Award honors organizations that embrace the Institute of Medicine’s aims by incorporating the six attributes of an ideal health care delivery system as identified by the Commonwealth Fund Commission on a high-performance health system. The Acclaim Award highlights the continued research and investigation toward finding the finest models of medical management, coordination of care delivery and a systemic approach to improving the patient experience. “These organizations demonstrated a monumental leap forward in providing patients the health care they need, want and deserve,” said Donald W. Fisher, PhD, AMGA’s president and chief executive officer and AMGF secretary/treasurer. “We salute the dedication of the organizations’ leadership and health care providers in improving patient outcomes, efficiency, coordination, and organizational and clinical integration. Their ongoing efforts will ensure that their patients will receive quality, value-based care throughout their lives.” HealthTexas’ “Transforming Health Care Delivery Through Patient-Centered Care” initiative centers on a strategy of clinical transformation – a commitment to continually improve the quality of patient care through the redesign of clinical processes. This strategy focuses on reducing unintended variation, cost, waste and error, enabling HealthTexas to make remarkable progress in developing and implementing quality improvement initiatives.
