AMP Medicare Advantage
IHA’s Align. Measure. Perform. (AMP) programs use a fair and transparent approach to measurement, and they focus on creating comprehensive benchmarks and a reliable assessment of performance for medical groups, independent practice association (IPAs), and accountable care organizations (ACOs) across health plans. The AMP programs are recognized nationally for partnering with organizations across California and the nation to drive meaningful changes that reduce costs and improve healthcare quality and outcomes. Paired with the insights from Atlas, the AMP programs help partners reduce the reporting burden for payers and providers by using a standard measure set to deliver objective data and analysis that supports performance improvement.
IHA leverages the measures and methodologies that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) uses to generate health plan star ratings to measure and publicly report performance and star ratings for medical groups and IPAs. The AMP Medicare Advantage program (formerly known as Medicare Advantage 5 Star Reporting of Physician Organizations) supports measure alignment across the healthcare delivery system and provides reliable performance information that consumers can use to compare star ratings for physician organizations providing care to Medicare Advantage enrollees in California.
