Home       Performance Measurement      AMP Program      Awards

Public recognition is an important part of the AMP program. Your physician organization’s recognition is tangible evidence of your hard work and commitment to improving care. It’s also an important differentiator and a competitive edge.

Each year, we recognize top-performing providers and those demonstrating the greatest year-to-year improvement.

AMP Commercial HMO awards

 

Excellence in Healthcare

Our most prestigious award recognizes provider organizations for delivering high-value care. Excellence in Healthcare award winners perform in the top 50% in all three AMP measurement areas: quality, patient experience, and cost.

Top 10 % Performers

Providers who win in this category perform in the top 10% in one or more of AMP’s measurement areas: clinical quality, patient experience, or total cost of care.

Ronald P. Bangasser, MD, Memorial Recognition for Quality Improvement

Each year, we recognize eight organizations—one from each California region—that demonstrate the greatest year-to-year improvement in clinical quality and patient experience.

AMP Medicare Advantage awards

 

Medicare Stars Quality 

Each year, we recognize physician organizations that perform well by earning an overall Medicare Advantage star rating of 5 or 4.5 stars against national benchmarks established by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) across a set of 13 Part C (Medicare Advantage) and Part D (Prescription Drug Plan) performance measures.

Medicare Stars Quality Improvement 

We determine Medicare Stars Quality Improvement recognition by calculating the improvement in the number of overall stars for each physician organization on the overall Medicare Stars score for this year compared to the overall score for last year. The physician organizations that improved by at least 1/2 a star are recognized as the most improved physician organizations in California.
