Central Texas Heart Center (CTHC) was recently identified as a “better performer” in the MGMA Performance and Practices of Successful Medical Groups: 2014 Report Based on 2013 Data because of superior operational performance compared with similar medical group practices nationwide.  CTHC achieved success in three of the four “Better-Performing Practice” categories, including Profitability and Cost Management; Productivity, Capacity, and Staffing; and Patient Satisfaction.

The results were published by the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA), the leading association for medical practice administrators and executives.  Headquartered in Englewood CO, MGMA represents over 33,000 medical practice administrators and executives in practices of all sizes, types, structures and specialties in all 50 states.

The MGMA report, a benchmarking standard among medical groups for more than a decade, was produced using data from respondents to the MGMA Cost Survey: 2014 Report Based on 2013 Data as well as data from a questionnaire that assessed management behaviors, practices and procedures of better performers.
