Overtreatment is one of the root causes for the affordable care crisis.  To address the issue, Cedar Gate has partnered with the Global Appropriateness Measures Group (GAM), a collaboration of healthcare experts committed to the goal of measuring high-value care and reducing waste. Using the principles of practice pattern measurement, clinical wisdom, and medical evidence, GAM seeks to promote a safer, higher quality and more efficient healthcare system. GAM metrics are the gold standard of appropriate care measurement.

Metric Development

Using the body of evidence from the medical literature and the clinical wisdom of practicing physicians, GAM identifies candidate areas for measurement development. Measures are vetted by a group of expert specialists with a keen interest in the appropriateness of medical care in their specialty.

Performance Indicators & Reports

Receive crystal clear and easily-calculated indicators of performance that disclose inappropriate clinical variations. Then use actionable data to create physician-specific performance reports that incentivize “outlier” physicians to modify their behavior through peer-to-peer comparisons.
