Oakland, Calif (August 23, 2018) — Brown & Toland Physicians again earned “Elite” status in America’s Physician Groups’ (APGs) annual Standards of Excellence survey, marking the 12th consecutive year that the Bay Area independent practice association earned the highest possible ranking in the survey of hundreds of medical groups across the country.  

 As a APG Elite group, Brown & Toland achieved superior results in the following six domains:

  • Care Management Practices
  • Information Technology
  • Accountability and Transparency
  • Patient-Centered Care
  • Group Support of Advanced Primary Care
  • Administrative and Financial Capability  

Brown & Toland and its network of more 2,500 physicians use electronic health records, and other population management electronic tools, to manage patient care. Additionally, the medical group has in place a care management team that works directly with patients, and their doctors, to help manage chronic conditions and other programs and works hospital systems and ancillary providers to deliver quality care in the best setting possible.
