We studied one such group to determine the organizational and cultural attributes that seem related to its achievements in care quality. METHODS A 15—family physician medical group was identified from comparative public performance scores of 27 medical groups providing most of the primary care in our metropolitan area. Semistructured interviews were conducted with diverse personnel in this group, operations were observed, and written documents were reviewed. Four primary care physician researchers and a consultant then reviewed transcriptions, field notes, and materials during semistructured sessions to identify the main attributes of this group and their probable origins. RESULTS This medical group ranked first in a composite measure of preventive services and fourth and sixth, respectively, in composite scores for coronary artery disease and diabetes care.

In this interaction, a patient rejected a particular recommendation from his physician. Although the patient continued to see the physician for other matters, he declined a referral to a urologist. A year-old male patient presented to his family physician FP in January with complaints of back and flank pain. Urine tests from that appointment showed trace blood, so the FP told the patient he should see a urologist for follow-up.
