2019 Physician Group Honor Roll Announced

Harvard Pilgrim would like to congratulate the 61 physician groups in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, and New Hampshire named to our 17th 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 16 measures, such as appropriate treatment for children with upper respiratory infection, comprehensive diabetes care, and breast cancer screenings. 12 of the 61 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. To view the complete list of this year’s recipients, and to learn more about Harvard Pilgrim’s methodology, please visit the 2019 Physician Group Honor Roll page.
