MemorialCare Health System In Southern California Receives Advisory Board National Physician Partnership Award For Care Quality

ORANGE COUNTY/ LOS ANGELES COUNTIES, Calif., May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- MemorialCare Health System is one of two organizations chosen from more than 1,000 hospitals nationwide to receive the prestigious 2013 Crimson Physician Partnership Award presented by The Advisory Board at its Scottsdale, Arizona Summit.

MemorialCare Health System is an integrated delivery system that includes six hospitals in Los Angeles and Orange counties and more than 200 care sites throughout Southern California. The Advisory Board Company, a global research and technology firm that works with 4,100 organizations across health care and higher education, is headquartered in Washington, DC.

The award recognizes MemorialCare's outstanding partnership with 2,500 affiliated physicians that has resulted in the delivery of higher quality care at a lower cost. This has been accomplished by utilizing advanced technologies to analyze data, identify national trends and benchmarks and showing individual physicians how they compare to other physicians across the country in a wide array of clinical and other categories. A health system in Texas and New Mexico was also honored.

"As health care providers move toward new models of accountable care, MemorialCare Health System has exhibited remarkable results in achieving outcomes that go well beyond national standards," says Paul Roscoe, CEO of Crimson. "MemorialCare distinguishes itself with exceptional quality of care while driving significant savings from its quality initiatives." 

In its fourth year, the award is presented to executive and physician leadership teams at organizations that participate in the Crimson Physician Performance Management platform. A program of The Advisory Board Company, Crimson provides a user-friendly and comprehensive physician technology platform, best practice performance improvement support, and clinical and operational benchmarks. The goal is to help align the efforts of physicians, hospitals and health systems to deliver higher quality, more cost-effective care to patients and populations they serve.
