PAMF Named a “Top Performer” by IHA
Posted on Sep 20, 2012
The Palo Alto Medical Foundation (PAMF) was one of six physician organizations connected to the Sutter Health network that was recognized as statewide leaders in clinical quality by the Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA), a renowned industry leadership group in California. PAMF was ranked as “Top Performer.”
“This award is a testament to the excellent care that PAMF physicians and staff provide to our patients,” said Laurel Trujillo, M.D., PAMF medical director of quality who accepted the award on behalf of the medical group.
Out of nearly 200 physician organizations, the 47 top performers achieved the highest overall quality in 2011 based on the IHA statewide Pay for Performance (P4P) program measures. In addition to celebrating the top performers, IHA honored the physician organizations that demonstrated the most quality improvement from 2010 to 2011.
