PITTSBURGH, PA, January 31, 2013 – In November 2012, Foundation Radiology Group joined the Virginia Quality Care Partners, LLC (VQCP), a new physician-led, hospital-supported clinically integrated network based in Central Virginia designed to improve quality and reduce the cost of care. The participating physicians of the VQCP network have spent the past two years designing governance and quality initiatives to benchmark and measure outcomes for over 40 specialties that span the continuum of care.
Foundation’s care driven philosophy combines strong service line support underpinned by the subspecialty services of a renowned, highly‐skilled physician team. This is backed with a state‐of‐the‐art technology solution to provide hospitals and patients access to a high‐quality imaging solution, with industry‐leading clinically relevant turn‐around times.
Clinically-integrated physician networks, like Virginia Quality Care Partners, genuinely improve the quality of care delivered and the patient’s quality of life. This collaborative approach will improve the consistency and communication as patients move back and forth from the physician’s clinic to the hospital. Through this innovative approach, patients receive greater consistency of high quality care delivered from a trusted source – their physician – through better and more efficient communication.
“Being a part of Virginia Quality Care Partners reinforces our mission to revolutionize the practice of radiology in community healthcare settings,” said Dr. James Backstrom, Chief Medical Officer of Foundation Radiology Group. He adds, “This opportunity perfectly dovetailed with our commitment to be on the forefront of quality. We’re very proud to join this clinical network that is collectively dedicated to achieving quality and efficiency goals.”
