January 2024|NewsPress Releases

Canton, MA (January 3, 2024) – A total of 53 physician groups in the Harvard Pilgrim commercial provider network have been named to Harvard Pilgrim Health Care’s 22nd annual Physician Group Honor Roll. The Harvard Pilgrim 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.

Harvard Pilgrim, a Point32Health company, selected the 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. A total of 16 of the 53 practices on the Physician Group Honor Roll achieved “With Distinction” status, meaning they exceeded NCQA’s national 90th percentile in these domains of clinical care.

“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.”

Honor Roll physician groups are noted in Harvard Pilgrim’s printed and online provider directories, as well as on the organization’s web site, enabling members to evaluate and select providers based on quality measures.
