CHI St. Joseph Health Partners Recognized for Patient Care Strategies

Bryan, TX, November 11 2019— CHI St. Joseph Health Partners has received a Gold TMF Physician Practice Quality Improvement Award for improving patient outcomes in high-priority clinical areas while applying innovative strategies to advance quality health care.

The Accountable Care Organization (ACO) is among more than 3,200 health care providers in seven states and the territory of Puerto Rico to receive the award. The TMF Physician Practice Quality Improvement Award is based on the four categories of the Merit-based Incentive Payment System: Quality Measures, Promoting Interoperability, Improvement Activities and Cost/Utilization. TMF assessed CHI St. Joseph Health Partners based on clinical outcome measures for the 2018 calendar year.

“Delivering quality care requires an ongoing commitment and collaboration with our physicians and team members to continually assess and improve processes,” said Reyann Davis, Director of CHI St. Joseph Health Partners. “Our team is honored to receive this award, recognizing the value of our work and commitment to our patients. We are dedicated to providing the best possible care and look forward to continually finding new ways to provide quality, patient-focused care.”

TMF Health Quality Institute and Texas medical associations collaborated to introduce the award program in 2012 to recognize top-performing practices and ACOs. TMF has since extended the program to include practices in Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma and the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico.
The award criteria aligns with national health priorities established by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to improve patient care and satisfaction and promote effective care management. Award recipients demonstrated how they have actively incorporated health information technology and strategies to promote patient engagement and improve the patient experience.

“Physicians and their clinics hold critical front-line roles in health care delivery,” said Gary W. Floyd, MD, and chair of the TMF Board of Trustees. “Improving health care involves multiple strategies – from applying new technologies, to developing programs that promote healthy living. Through coordinated and data-driven strategies, these physicians are making a difference in the lives of their patients and their communities.”
