Projected Distribution and Year-to-Date Performance
HQEP is an agreement between Augusta Care Partners and Augusta Health. The program is designed to manage costs and improve quality for the health system.

The projected total distribution is currently at $327K based on the network’s performance through November 2017, and a detailed dashboard of year-to-date performance on HQEP metrics is below.
