"After years of facing financial hardship, medical groups and other organized systems of care are improving their financial performance," commented Donald W. Fisher, Ph.D., CAE, president and chief executive officer of AMGA. "Our members have worked diligently to offer the highest quality, most efficient medical care at the lowest cost and their efforts are slowly beginning to pay off with their diligent cost savings translating in stronger financial performances. This is another example of the superiority of the integrated, coordinated model of care delivery. As these medical groups strive to become high-performing health systems, they are investing in improvements in care processes and infrastructure that will provide patients with better health outcomes, enhanced care experience, and lower costs well into the future. It is gratifying to see their efforts are also resulting in financial gains, and we hope they can continue to improve financial performance."
