The NCQA and BTE web sites provide physicians with specific application procedures and assistance. Many community physicians are becoming certified across the nation, as BTE has been implemented in 17 markets with 3,000 physicians.

The Collaborative plans to implement three BTE programs by the end of 2007 and to begin compensating physicians in first quarter 2008. North Carolina is among the three largest markets across 18 states to implement BTE.

"These leading employers are not just implementing the BTE program to improve health care value for their employees and families, but they are also implementing the program to raise the quality of care for their customers as well," said Ches Gwinn, Health Care Collaborative project manager with Aon Consulting.

Through the Collaborative, participating employers will compensate certified physicians who are NCQA-certified and meet certain additional criteria. Physician compensation will be based on the number of employees and dependents covered by participating employers who are treated by each physician or group. The eligible employees and dependents must reside within the six specified Research Triangle Area counties: Orange, Durham, Chatham, Franklin, Johnston, and Wake.

"The RTA Health Care Collaborative is poised to make a difference in the quality and cost of health care in the RTA area," said Genie Komives, MD, senior medical director at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina.

By adopting Bridges to Excellence, the collaborative
