(Victor Valley)– Heritage Victor Valley Medical Group was recently awarded a 5-star rating by CAPG, The Voice of Accountable Physician Groups — the country’s leading association representing physician organizations practicing capitated, coordinated care.
The highly coveted “elite” rating was recently handed out through CAPG’s annual Standards of Excellence survey and reflects HVVMG’s superior care and outstanding services.
Created in 2006, the survey is a comprehensive examination of the coordinated care infrastructure for accountable physician groups and assesses the tools and processes CAPG members have in place to meet the escalating expectations of healthcare purchasers and patients.
Graded on five categories, HVVMG received a star for care management practices, health information technology, accountability and transparency, patient centered care, and physician organization support for advanced primary care.
Every year, CAPG’s Clinical Quality Leadership committee adds new elements of demonstrated value in each domain to set a higher standard than the year before.
These five domains are scored by a CAPG peer committee. An organization achieving a star in all five categories is recognized as “Elite.”
