"The Bridges to Excellence program aligns very well with both our health care strategy and our health care initiative to provide our employees with high-quality medical care at an affordable price, while encouraging our employees to take an active role in managing their personal health care needs," said Charles Montreuil, vice president of corporate human resources at Carlson, president of the BTE board, and chair of the Buyers Health Care Action Group. "Our research shows that by rewarding physicians who give optimal health care to our employees, we can help to control our costs, establish common-care guidelines and help to improve the quality of treatment for our employees with diseases such as diabetes and heart problems. We are extremely optimistic about the continuing impact of this program on our overall health care initiative."

BTE acknowledges its partners over the last five years including the National Committee for Quality Assurance, the National Business Coalition on Health and its member coalitions, Thomson-Medstat, MassPRO, MN Community Measurement, the Center for Health Transformation, Towers Perrin, Mercer and HealthGrades.
