InterMed named to 2024 Harvard Pilgrim Physician Group Honor Roll
We are delighted to announce that InterMed has been named to the 2024 Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Physician Group Honor Roll. The Honor Roll highlights physician groups that have achieved exceptional results in their approach to disease prevention and the treatment of acute and chronic illness for both adult and pediatric patients. InterMed is the only physician group in Maine that made the list.
Harvard Pilgrim, a Point32Health company, selected the 53 Honor Roll physician groups based on 2022 clinical performance measured against national standards set by HEDIS (Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set), a tool developed for the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) to assess the clinical performance of doctors and other medical professionals.
Harvard Pilgrim reviewed performance in three domains of clinical care affecting both adult and pediatric patients: acute, chronic and preventive care. Physician groups were identified as Honor Roll practices based on points earned for performance on 15 measures such as appropriate treatment for children with upper respiratory infection, comprehensive diabetes care and breast cancer screenings.
“We are honored to recognize these physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants around the region for their exemplary performance on key quality measures,” said Dr. Raj Hazarika, Point32Health’s Chief Medical Officer, Commercial Products. “These high-performing clinical results and achievements reflect their commitment to providing high-quality care and healthier outcomes for their patients, including investments in capturing and reporting clinical data. We are proud to spotlight these health care professionals for their outstanding work.”
