AMGA Collaborative for Performance Excellence: How It Works

The AMGA Collaborative for Performance Excellence is exclusively available to AMGA members. Imposing a very low burden on your IT department, Optum will extract your EHR and billing data (outbound claims, Medicare, commercial) and will map, normalize, and validate these data, allowing for “apples to apples” comparisons among organizations.

Participants will initially select one domain for a focused project in addition to receiving quarterly benchmarking across all four domains. Guided by nationally recognized advisors and AMGA staff, collaborative participants will receive ongoing support and insights to translate data into action. The collaborative also offers peer-to-peer networking opportunities to hear from fellow participants that have achieved success across the domains. Participants who are also Optum clients will be able to further leverage the collaborative insights by creating ad hoc custom reports within the Optum Analytics platform.
