Clinical Integration is a Quality Initiative to standardize clinical care to conform to recognized best practices.

13. Why do you do Clinical Integration?

The Genesis Physicians Group Board of Directors decided to implement this program for four reasons:
  • Validate to payors that our physicians provide measureable superior care.
  • Communicate quantifiably positive patient outcomes (aggregate results) to consumers, employers and managed care organizations.
  • Offer member physicians the increased market value of a “brand name” – Genesis Physicians Group – that stands for consistently high quality care at appropriate costs.
  • To provide our member physicians with feedback on best practices in relation to the medical care they provide their patients.

14. How does the Genesis member-only website work?

Members are given a user name and password to access important information such as fee schedules, payer contracts, and member discounts. They also use the site to opt-in or opt-out of payer contracts, register for trainings and events, and to upload data for our Quality Initiative. It is the portal to personalized information for our member offices.
