American Medical Group Foundation

The American Medical Group Foundation (AMGF) supports AMGA members in their efforts to enhance population health and care through integrated delivery systems.  The coordinated healthcare delivery model practiced by member groups is becoming the model of choice for quality, cost-efficient care.

As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, we support critical research, demonstration projects and learning collaboratives that translate into the innovative practices that enable AMGA members to produce continued, positive improvement in patient outcomes and care experiences.  These activities enable them to remain on the vanguard of quality health care.

We appreciate your support of AMGF's activities through donations and participation.

Some results:

  • At one of the groups participating in a collaborative on managing patients with chronic conditions, the entire population of patients served by the medical home and community health team showed a 15.8% reduction in hospital admissions and a 15.7% reduction in ER visits.

  • Participants in AMGF's Best Practices in Managing Patients with Hypertension Learning Collaborative and Hypertension Learning Symposium significantly improved blood pressure control.  Specifically, one medical group in Ohio achieved and sustained (over a three-year period) an average of 93% of patients with blood pressure at goal.

  • To date, 36 case studies of best practices have been published from AMGA's Best Practices in Care Learning Collaboratives. They detail how these best practices have already led to several innovative, low-cost, and efficacious treatments that positively affect the delivery of quality patient care and the management of the bottom line.
