Public recognition is a key component of IHA’s Value Based Pay for Performance (VBP4P) program. Each year, IHA recognizes top-performing physician organizations as well as those demonstrating the greatest year-to-year improvement regionally.

Excellence in Healthcare Recognition

The Excellence in Healthcare Award recognizes physician organizations that achieve top marks on quality and patient experience measures while effectively managing costs. To earn this recognition, physician organizations must perform in the top 50 percent in all three major VBP4P measurement areas: clinical quality, patient experience, and total cost of care.
