In early 2024, our Provider Finder tool will identify providers who are highly rated for quality, cost-efficient care and appropriate treatment plans. These providers’ profiles will display a “Top Performing Physician” designation to help inform our members and connect them with care.
How It Works
The Top Performing Physician designation is based on results of our Physician Efficiency, Appropriateness, and QualitySM (PEAQSM) program. This evidence-based program evaluates primary care physicians and some specialists on three measures of health care standards: quality of patient care, medical appropriateness and cost efficiency.
PEAQ results show how providers compare to peers. Within Provider Finder, the Provider Profile pages will show summaries of PEAQ performance scores.
