AMGA Collaborative for Performance Excellence

AMGA’s newest program – the Collaborative for Performance Excellence – is a forum for AMGA members to use data and advanced analytics to achieve success in preparing for risk-based contracts and driving clinical and operational efficiency.

Led by AMGA and powered by Optum®, the collaborative is designed to work with most EHRs and extract clinical, claims, and administrative data. Leveraging the industry’s strongest clinical and claims analytics platform, it offers insights that allow you to benchmark against other high-performing organizations, and give you proven ways to identify and replicate best practices from other member organizations.

This collaborative, exclusive to AMGA members, is aimed at medical groups and health systems looking to:

  • Achieve superior population clinical outcomes efficiently and cost-effectively
  • Identify and act to improve low-performance areas
  • Incorporate insights quickly into practice workflows

Four domains of the collaborative enable participants to focus on specific areas to prepare for risk-based contracts and drive operational efficiency. Learn more about the domains here.

Discover details on how the collaborative works, including, benchmarking, data review, and shared learning.
