Wellmont Medical Associates has been named to an exclusive list of medical groups honored with the American Medical Group Association's 2014 Acclaim Award.
AMGA recognizes a select few groups each year in its Acclaim Award program, and Wellmont Medical Associates is the only honoree in our region. In fact, Wellmont Medical Associates is just the second group ever to be recognized with an Acclaim Award across Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky and West Virginia.
This achievement puts Wellmont Medical Associates in the company of widely recognized and respected organizations such as Mayo Health System, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Henry Ford Health System and Geisinger Health System.
AMGA recognized Wellmont Medical Associates for keeping patients healthier and out of the hospital. A few of our more significant accomplishments to enhance patient care and outcomes include:
There are a number of benefits patients will experience when they visit Wellmont Medical Associates. We have fully embraced a physician leadership model, which has driven our patient-centered approach to care and many other important changes.
Wellmont Medical Associates has made
significant progress in managing diabetes, controlling cholesterol in our diabetic patients and controlling hypertension – just a few examples of the improved results for our patients.
Another key factor is the new
MyWellmont patient portal, which offers Wellmont Medical Associates patients easy, secure access to their health records, eliminating duplication of services and enhancing the quality, safety and efficiency of our care.
And in making these improvements, we're seeing our highest levels of patient satisfaction ever. By the end of 2013, we ranked in the 78th percentile of all groups nationwide - and that number continues to climb. Some of our practices have achieved the 99th percentile nationally.
