Who Rates Us?
Who rates PAMF on quality?
Each year PAMF submits data on specific [preventative] health care services and treatments we provide to our patients to the Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA), a statewide leadership group that promotes quality improvement, accountability and affordability of health care in California.
The IHA, as part of their Pay for Performance (P4P) program, ranks us on how well we are doing on providing our patients with high-quality, appropriate care.
PAMF has been recognized by the IHA every year since 2003 as a quality performer in medical care. We are the only IHA-recognized physician organization to earn this consistent honor.
How many organizations are involved?
- Nearly 200 physician organizations, representing approximately 35,000 physicians who provide care for about 9 million patients, participate in the IHA statewide Pay for Performance (P4P) program.
- This program represents the longest running U.S. example of data aggregation and standardized results reporting across diverse regions and multiple health plans.
Where can I see the entire report?
You can browse the entire public report on all quality measurements by county and medical group on the State of California Office of Patient Advocate website which is the reporting tool of the IHA.
