CDPHP knows that quality is more important than quantity. That’s why we encourage primary care provider to focus their time and attention on critical quality metrics proven to keep patients healthy. This includes screenings for things like diabetes, colon cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer, and more.
We also know that when it comes to your health care, little thing can make a big difference. Like, how easy is it to get an appointment? Or how long are you stuck in the waiting room? We’ve done the homework and compiled a list of local doctors who go out of their way to please you!

Ten years since launching an innovative care model designed to improve the quality and affordability of health care for hundreds of thousands of local patients, CDPHP is pleased to report its Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) program has netted nearly $400 million in savings over the last decade.
In 2012, noticing a shortage in the number of local medical students choosing the field of primary care medicine, CDPHP launched the program with the primary goal of reducing physician burnout while achieving optimal health outcomes for its members. EPC departs from the traditional fee-for-service payment model, which encourages more, not better care. Instead, EPC doctors are paid for quality, not quantity, and receive significant financial incentives for meeting certain quality milestones.
“We’re paying doctors to spend more quality time with their patients,” said CDPHP president and CEO, Dr. John D. Bennett. “This has resulted in fewer emergency room visits, inpatient hospital stays, and costly medications being prescribed,” added Bennett, who noted the majority of savings were related to pharmacy costs with providers prescribing generic medications over costly name brand drugs.
In addition to cost savings, EPC sites have been proven to move the needle on key quality metrics,
outperforming non-EPC sites in the areas of asthma care, diabetes care, cancer screenings, and more.
|Asthma Medication Ratio > 50% – 5 to 64||73.6%||77.7%|
|Diabetes – Eye Exam||55.3%||63.4%|
|Diabetes – A1C Control <8%||29.6%||49.4%|
|Kidney Health Evaluation for Patients with Diabetes||30.1%||48%|
|Colorectal Cancer Screening||64.5%||79.2%|
|Breast Cancer Screening||74.5%||82.2%|
|Cervical Cancer Screening||70.8%||78.6%|
“We’re putting our money where are mouth is. EPC doctors have been proven to excel on critical quality scores, so this is a true investment in the health of our community.”CDPHP president and CEO, Dr. John D. Bennett
Today, the EPC program includes 200 primary care practices which provide care for 90 percent of CDPHP members. Over the life of the program, EPC providers received an additional $75 million more in reimbursements and enhanced bonuses than if they had not participated in the program.
