Osler Certification – a Higher Standard of Care
Osler Select, Elite and Center of Excellence certifications represent increasing stages of transformation into the next level of patient-centered performance. Osler equips, trains and supports physicians and their staff in to be clinical managers. Aside from the obvious benefits to patients and their families, Osler certifications convey tangible value to others, likely and unlikely. For example, patients no longer must rely on Internet sites that use easily manipulated rankings or Aunt Millie to find the right doctor or health care provider – the Osler brand is an assurance of quality, capability and service.
Osler certifications also have value for groups as diverse as health insurers to malpractice insurers. Health plans accept Osler certification in their top tier provider networks. Conversely, malpractice insurers provide discounts and additional services because higher quality equates to lower risk.
Finally, Osler certification is required to participate in Osler value based programs, earning higher levels of practice transformation financial support and larger portions of shared savings because they are higher performing and more valuable to us all as a group.

What Makes Osler Different
While we are an Independent Practice Association and an Accountable Care Organization, Osler is really a cooperative in the operational sense because it is owned by its participating physicians who also have access to the benefits of a large, dedicated corporate structure. Benefits such as a group 401(k), group health insurance (coming 2018), group malpractice and many other benefits that a hospital would provide.
All without having to sell out your independence or life’s work.
