Texas Hospital and Physician Practice Quality Improvement Award Programs
Since 2004, TMF Health Quality Institute, in partnership with Texas Hospital Association, Texas Organization of Rural and Community Hospitals, Texas Medical Association and Texas Osteopathic Medical Association, has sponsored the Texas Health Care Quality Improvement Award program for hospitals. In 2012, 167 out of 214 participating hospitals were awarded Gold, Silver or Bronze awards.
The 2012-2013 hospital award program will automatically include all Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS or Acute Care) Hospitals and Critical Access Hospitals (CAH) statewide. For more information on this program, please click here.
Since 2012, TMF, in partnership with Texas Medical Association and Texas Osteopathic Medical Association, has sponsored the Texas Physician Practice Quality Improvement Award.

The 2013 award program criteria will be announced in summer 2013. Sign up to receive more information about the 2013 program.
