Harvard Pilgrim would like to congratulate the 66 physician groups in Massachusetts, Maine, and New Hampshire named to our 16th annual Physician Group Honor Roll. The annual Honor Roll highlights physician groups that have achieved exceptional results in their approach to disease prevention and the treatment of acute and chronic illness for both adult and pediatric patients.
Harvard Pilgrim selected the Honor Roll physician groups based on clinical performance measured against NCQA’s national HEDIS quality benchmarks in three domains of clinical care: acute, chronic, and preventive care. Physician groups were identified as Honor Roll practices based on performance on 15 measures, such as appropriate treatment for children with upper respiratory infection, comprehensive diabetes care, and breast cancer screenings. Nineteen of the 66 practices on the Physician Group Honor Roll achieved “With Distinction” status, meaning they exceeded NCQA’s national 90th percentile in all domains of clinical care.
Honor Roll physician groups are noted in Harvard Pilgrim’s Provider Directory, enabling members to evaluate and select providers based on quality and safety performance.
