Physician Efficiency, Appropriateness, & QualitySM (PEAQSM) Program

Our PEAQ program evaluates physician performance in a transparent and multidimensional way. Its goal is to work with the physician community to maximize physician efficiency, appropriateness, and quality of care.

PEAQ program guiding principles include:

  • Metrics – Selecting meaningful measures that are evidence-based and nationally recognized to evaluate physician performance
  • Transparency – Sharing details to help physicians understand how the program works and ways it can support efficiency, appropriateness and quality of care for our members
  • Collaboration – Partnering with physicians to ensure measurement transparency and clinical relevance
  • Continuous Improvement - Reevaluating our methodology and measures regularly based on physician feedback and recent clinical evidence
  • Insights – Providing physician-level reporting to help improve overall performance
  • Member Focus – Use PEAQ program results to help our members identify physicians who are right for them
