USAP provides capital, centralized administrative resources, innovative health care information technology and additional business intelligence to empower its partner practices in maintaining strong operational excellence in an ever-changing health care environment. As partners whose interests are completely aligned, we share in the future growth and success of our organization.
The physician-led Continuous Clinical Quality Improvement
The physician-led Continuous Clinical Quality Improvement Program draws collective data, best practices and involvement from the full spectrum of partner practices, compares USAP standards to national standards and provides clinicians with data-driven quality analyses and real time feedback that help to improve patient outcomes; the patient, family and surgeon experience; and reduce the overall cost of care.
USAP Leadership consists of approximately 50 per cent physician partners and 50 per cent business experts. Each practice maintains its own governance, plus gains approximately 50 per cent collective ownership in USAP. USAP is governed by its board of directors and led by a strong business executive team with vast experience in building and growing physician services organizations in the U.S.
