Woodland Healthcare has been named one of the most improved physician organizations in the state by the Integrated Healthcare Association, a nonprofit association aimed at promoting quality improvement, accountability and affordability.
This award recognizes Woodland Healthcare’s improvement in three quality measurement domains: meaningful use of health information technology; patient experience; and clinical measures that include priority conditions such as cardiovascular, diabetes, musculoskeletal, respiratory and prevention.
IHA recognizes participating physician organizations whose composite scores have improved the most over the previous year with the Ronald P. Bangasser, M.D., Memorial Award for Quality Improvement. Woodland Healthcare was one of eight physician organizations to receive the award this year and the only one in the Sacramento region to receive it.
“Woodland Healthcare is constantly working to improve the care we provide to our patients,” said Michael Patmas, M.D., chief medical officer. “Having the IHA recognize the actions we have taken to do so in the past year, including our commitment to improving the patient experience, is very gratifying.”
