LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SynerMed, Inc., a leading Managed Services Organization (MSO) announced today that three of its medical groups were awarded “Elite” status in (CAPG) annual Standards of Excellence (SOE) survey, which assesses how well physician groups view themselves in improving patient experience, population health and affordability.
“Each year the bar is set higher and national standards become tougher to reach,” said SynerMed President and CEO James Mason. “Today we celebrate our SynerMed Team and each medical group for continuing to meet the expectations of our patients by providing value-based, affordable, quality care.
The Standards of Excellence survey promotes transparency among healthcare organizations and has become the industry standard for assessing and evaluating healthcare systems nationwide. The self-assessment survey is voluntary for CAPG members, which includes 190 medical groups in 38 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
SOE domains featuring critical aspects of coordinated care:
- Care Management Practices
- Health Information Technology
- Accountability and Transparency
- Patient-Centered Care
- Group Support for Advanced Primary Care
- Administrative and Financial Capability
As the voice of accountable physicians, CAPG’s rigorous SOE survey requirements help consumers and healthcare purchasers evaluate physician groups to make informed choices.
“Our client medical groups are comprised of independent physicians primarily serving the Medicaid population which makes this feat that much more impressive,” said Mason.
CAPG partnered with the National Committee for Quality Assurance on the analysis and scoring of the survey. In 2013, the RAND Corporation used the SOE scoring to rank the infrastructure elements influencing total cost of care in California. In a report to the National Institute of Health, the RAND Corporation reported the SOE scoring provided the highest yield structures for cost efficiency. Survey results and additional information can be found at capg.org/soe.
