CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (August 31, 2011) – Dr. Eugene Ryan, internal medicine specialist at Parkridge Medical Group Diagnostic Center, was recently recognized by Medicare Advantage insurer HealthSpring for achieving the highest compliance score for the year 2010 in the company’s Partnership 4 Quality (P4Q) initiative.
P4Q is a physician-designed program that revolutionizes the patient experience by empowering physicians and coordinating care across all levels. Through electronic records, the program tracks quality measures, such as preventive screenings and vaccines. The program aims to keep patients healthy and improve quality of life by focusing on preventive and personalized care. P4Q rewards physicians for quality treatment of patients and provides support resources, such as extra in-office nurses, to help optimize clinical outcomes. Participation in the P4Q program is voluntary and reflects a physician’s commitment to providing outstanding quality care for patients.
HealthSpring reports that since the launch of the P4Q program in 2006, participating physicians and their patients have dramatically improved clinical quality measures and expressed extreme satisfaction with the program.
