IHA Rated as Metro Detroit’s Top Physician Group in Consumer Reports Article

New ratings published in the May issue of Consumer Reports magazine give consumers in the greater Detroit area a rare window into how their doctors compare. The ratings focus on how well doctors provide evidence-based care for patients with high cholesterol and diabetes, and how often doctors provide the right screening tests for colon cancer.

Known as The Doctor Project, the effort is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and was led in southeast Michigan by the Greater Detroit Area Health Council (GDAHC), a multi-stakeholder collaborative dedicated to improving health and wellbeing in the region.

GDAHC worked with 13 physician organizations—large networks of physicians—to collect and report data on the quality of medical care they provide. This report is first of its kind in Michigan and remains the only report combining data from all major commercial health plans and the performance of more than 3000 primary care physicians.

The Doctor Project is further validation that IHA’s hard work, systems & technology, and focus on meeting the needs of patients with personalized high-quality services is making a substantial difference. To read the full article, please click the Consumer Reports link http://bit.ly/23eqJIT.

M-14 Construction Information

 

Beginning Friday, March 4 at 9:00 pm, M-14 between Miller Road and Main Street will be shut down for construction. This closure is expected to last through summer and into the fall, which may impact your normal route to one of our office locations. Please allow yourself extra time to make it to your scheduled appointments.

In addition, if you are a patient at IHA Ann Arbor Family Medicine, IHA WestArbor Obstetrics & Gynecology, IHA WestArbor Internal Medicine or IHA Child Health – Ann Arbor, we are also aware that the construction may delay your drive time to your office when our new building, IHA WestArbor Medical Center, opens in late August.
