The award recognizes practices for improving care by:

  • Using health information technology in every day practice
  • Employing population care management
  • Participating in data reporting quality initiatives
  • Achieving exemplary performance on identified clinical quality measures

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has designated these areas as national health care priorities.  The award recognizes physician practices that are active in quality improvement and performed well in each of the above categories.

About the award

  • TMF Health Quality Institute, the Medicare Quality Improvement Organization for Texas, established the awards program in partnership with Texas Medical Association and Texas Osteopathic Medical Association.
  • Physician practices self-nominated in the summer of 2012, demonstrating their commitment to quality improvement. Over the course of 2012, they utilized health information technology in every day practice, regularly used population management methods, participated in a data reporting quality initiative and performed at or above the 90th percentile on nationally recognized clinical outcome measures, such as smoking cessation, blood pressure control and cancer screening.  Specific criteria had to be met to achieve the award.
  • Practice size was not a factor in determining who received an award. Award recipients included solo practitioners with one location to large multi-specialty practice with multiple locations.  Practices could apply either a single site/location or as a network.
  • Each practice abstracted and submitted data form their EHR with supporting documentation to meet the requirements for participation in the award.
Out of approximately 135 practices that self-nominated, 80 practices were recognized as award winners.
