The Oregon Clinic

The Oregon Clinic has been named a “better performer” in the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) Performance and Practices of Successful Medical Groups:  2009 Report Based on 2008 Data. The recognition is based on The Oregon Clinic’s superior operational performance compared with similar medical group practices nationwide.

The Oregon Clinic was recognized as a better performer in several different categories including productivity, capacity and staffing for surgical and non-surgical specialties – efficiencies that benefit patient care.

According to the MGMA, of the 1,700 medical practices that responded to the survey, 490 received the better performance rating.  There were a total of 48 practices named in the Northwest (Oregon, Washington and Idaho).  Fewer than 10 were named in the Portland area.

“We are very excited and proud to have achieved national recognition by the MGMA,” said Phil Armstrong, chief operating officer of The Oregon Clinic.  “Acknowledgement of this kind further demonstrates our commitment to delivering the highest standard of care to our patients.  Our providers and staff members are to be commended for their hard work and earning this honor.”

The MGMA report, a benchmarking standard among medical groups for over a decade, was produced using data from respondents to the MGMA Cost Survey: 2009 Reports Based on 2008 Data as well as data from a questionnaire that assessed management behaviors, practices and procedures of better performers.
