UnitedHealth Premium® physician designation Result for Heal n Cure

We received the welcome notification from Jerry R Frank, MD , National Medical Director for Physician Engagement for UnitedHealthcare, that Dr. Meena Malhotra has received the highest Premium designation for meeting or exceeding Quality and cost efficiency criteria.

Following are excerpts from UHC.com about the Premium Designation –

The UnitedHealth Premium® physician designation program uses clinical information from health care claims to assist physicians in their continuous practice improvement and to help consumers in making more informed and personally appropriate choices for their medical care. The program uses evidence-based, medical society, and national industry standards with a transparent methodology and robust data sources to evaluate physicians across 21 specialties to advance safe, timely, effective, efficient, equitable and patient-centered care.

Quality is the primary measurement, demonstrating our commitment to evidence-based practice. The quality designation is separate from the cost efficiency designation. Physicians must first be designated for quality in order to be designated for cost efficiency. Physicians are evaluated for Evidence-based Medicine Measures and Evidence-based Procedure-related Measures

Public Designation Displays

The following designation results are displayed publicly in UnitedHealthcare’s physician directories for use by members when making health care choices and by physicians when making referrals.
★★ (Quality and cost efficiency criteria met)

We inform members that it is important that they consider many factors and information from as many sources as possible when selecting a physician. We also inform our members that they may wish to discuss designations with a physician before choosing him or her, or confer with their current physician for advice on selecting other physicians.
