Health Care Partners Earns America’s Physician Groups Standards of Excellence™ Elite Honors

Our organization has once again been honored with top awards from APG’s 2019 Standards of Excellence™ survey. APG, formerly known as CAPG, is the nation’s leading association for physician groups focused on coordinated care.

Two DaVita Medical Group regions achieved Elite status this year. HealthCare Partners in California earned this distinction for the 13th year in a row and The Everett Clinic in Washington did so for the fifth year in a row.

Physician groups that receive this distinction go above and beyond to provide effective, high-value, patient-centered care that aligns with national quality standards. Elite awards are achieved by excelling in six areas: Care Management Practices, Information Technology, Accountability and Transparency, Patient-Centered Care, Group Support of Advanced Primary Care, and Administrative and Financial Capability. This year’s survey also included questions to highlight important topics such as social determinants of health, value-based incentives, financial standards, and post-hospital discharge follow-up.

The Standards of Excellence™ awards will be formally presented on Nov. 12 at APG’s 2019 Colloquium in Washington, DC.
