Arch Health honored for high-quality, affordable, patient-centered care

Arch Health Medical Group was one of just 28 physician organizations statewide to receive the 2019 Excellence in Healthcare Award from the Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA) for top performance on clinical quality, patient experience and cost measures. 

A key component of IHA’s statewide Align. Measure. Perform. (AMP) program, the Excellence in Healthcare Award recognizes physician organizations that perform in the top 50 percent in all three major AMP areas: clinical quality, patient experience and total cost of care. 

Of the nearly 200 physician organizations statewide participating in the Align. Measure. Perform. program, fewer than 1 in 5 attained Excellence in Healthcare Award performance standards for 2019, based on AMP results for measurement year 2018. The award was presented on Oct. 30 at IHA’s Annual Stakeholder Meeting. 

“We are proud to be recognized for improving health care quality, making sure patients have a good care experience while working to keep care affordable,” said Ken Lester, Executive Director of Arch Health Medical Group.

IHA President and CEO Jeff Rideout, M.D. 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.”
