Covenant Health And MemorialCare Health System Receive National Honors For Improving Care Quality, Creating $20M In Savings

WASHINGTON, May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Two prominent health systems were chosen from more than 1,000 hospitals nationwide to receive the 2013 Crimson Physician Partnership Awards presented today by The Advisory Board Company at its national Crimson® summit in Scottsdale, Arizona.


The Awards honored Covenant Health, a five-hospital system serving western Texas and eastern New Mexico, and MemorialCare Health System, 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, consulting, and technology firm that works with 4,100 organizations across health care and higher education, is based in Washington, D.C.

The Award, given at the Crimson Clinical Advantage Performance Summit, is in recognition of the health systems' outstanding partnerships with their physicians that have resulted in the delivery of higher quality care at a lower cost.  This has been accomplished by utilizing advanced technologies to analyze data and enable physicians to see how they compare to other physicians across the country in a number of clinical and other categories.

"As the nation's health care providers move toward new models of accountable care, these two remarkable health systems have achieved outcomes that go well beyond the national standards," said Paul Roscoe, CEO, Crimson.  "They have distinguished themselves with their quality of care initiatives while driving more than $20 million in aggregate savings."

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

Highlights of these two systems' results from Crimson-related initiatives include:
