PIH Health Physicians - Group Division is a Medicare Advantage Stars Winner

PIH Health Physicians - Group Division has been named as a 4.5 Star Award winner by the Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA), for their performance in the Medicare Advantage 5-Star Rating System (P4P Stars). This award is based on PIH Health Physicians performance.

“We are honored to receive this award, said PIH Health Physicians Chief Operating Officer Ramona Pratt. “We take tremendous pride in providing the highest-quality healthcare to the community we serve.”

Since 2008, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has publicly reported the performance of Medicare Advantage (MA) health plans on a variety of clinical quality, member experience and customer service measures through its 5-star rating system. Medicare star ratings are intended to help beneficiaries select higher-quality health plans. Building on the MA star rating system for health plans, the IHA uses a subset of 13 clinical measures to award star ratings at the physician organization (PO) level in California. Measuring performance at the PO level allows IHA to aggregate data from participating health plans to identify performance variations that can help plans and POs target quality improvement efforts.

IHA is a nonprofit statewide leadership group that promotes quality improvement, accountability, and affordability of healthcare for patients across California and the nation. For more information, please visit www.IHA.org.
