GRAND RAPIDS — The Michigan Association of Health Plans (MAHP) honored the Grand Valley Health Plan at its 2007 Pinnacle Awards for Best Practice reception on Sept. 18 in Lansing. GVHP received awards for the following categories:

  • Commercial Plan Business/Operational Performance for Patient-Centered Primary Care Inpatient Management

  • Commercial Plan Clinical Service Improvement for Integrative Counseling and Wellness Services in Primary Care

  • Provider Innovations in Diabetes Care for Best Practice for GVHPWalkerFamilyHealthCenter

The Pinnacle Awards for Best Practice were created in 2001 to document innovative change and the quest for measurable quality improvement among Michigan managed-care plans. This year, only four Pinnacle Awards for Commercial Health Plans and two Provider Community awards were awarded. All Michigan health plans and providers competed for these prestigious awards.

"We are pleased with the awards, which are the result of our long-term commitment to improving the services and quality of care we provide," said Pam Silva, GVHP's director of operations. "Health care management doesn't involve new medical care; rather it involves making successful changes in the way medical care is provided. We take pride in our ability and courage to recognize the need to implement changes to systems and processes that will improve outcomes for our patients."
