WELLESLEY, Mass., April 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- A total of 63 physician groups in the Harvard Pilgrim Network have been named to Harvard Pilgrim Health Care's 19th 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 selected the Honor Roll physician groups based on 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 14 measures such as appropriate treatment for children with upper respiratory infection, comprehensive diabetes care and breast cancer screenings. A total of 16 of the 63 practices on the Physician Group Honor Roll achieved "With Distinction" status, meaning they exceeded NCQA's national 90th percentile in all domains of clinical care.

"We are honored to partner with these exceptional physician groups and we congratulate each of them on their outstanding performance on national quality benchmarks," said Michael Sherman, MD, senior vice president at the combined organization of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and Tufts Health Plan.  "We recognize these physicians for their outstanding dedication to patient safety and for the exceptional care they provide our members."

Honor Roll practice providers 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 physicians based on quality measures.
