Partners in Excellence Program (PIE)

The Partners in Excellence Program forms the basis for HealthPartners' financial and public recognition for medical, specialty or pharmacy groups achieving high levels of performance of the Triple Aim:

  • Clinical Quality

Financial rewards are based on medical, specialty or pharmacy group performance as measured by Minnesota Community Measurement.
