BLUES EXPLAIN BRIDGES TO EXCELLENCE PROGRAM
My senior staff and I met with Drs. Eduardo Sanchez and Dee Whittlesey of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas to review their Bridges to Excellence program for physicians who care for patients with diabetes and heart disease. The program recognizes and pays for quality management of these patients. As of Feb. 28, about 340 physicians participate in the cardiac care program (PDF) and more than 110 are part of the diabetes project (PDF). Blue Cross is recruiting more physicians.
