It’s hard to improve what you can’t measure. And measuring value-based healthcare performance isn’t easy—different measure sets and methodologies can provide different results for the same population, or limited data might give you an incomplete picture of how you’re doing.

AMP is one of the nation’s largest, most established value-based healthcare performance improvement measurement programs, and has focused efforts to improve care quality and cost for millions of Californians. As an AMP, participant you can:
Impartial insights help you and your provider organizations have honest conversations about performance. Measuring only the most important performance metrics, AMP helps you quickly identify and reward high performance. These insights also show you what’s hampering performance so you can partner with provider organizations that need support.
Understand cost and quality benchmarks at multiple levels of detail to see improvement opportunities and where you excel. Recognition as an AMP top performer helps you position yourself as an industry leader and gives you leverage in health plan negotiations.
Patients can use AMP’s publicly reported results to make informed decisions about their healthcare providers. See the results on the Office of the Patient Advocate’s public report card webpage at reportcard.opa.ca.gov
