Buyers Health Care Action Group Pilots New Bridges to Excellence Program for Depression
Date:5/28/2008

ram in 2010. Champions of Change are employers that have taken the lead in publicly signaling to the medical community that health care purchasers want to financially reward providers for delivering optimal care defined by outcomes - not volumes of service performed. Champions of Change employers participating in Bridges to Excellence include: 3M, Carlson Companies, General Electric, Honeywell, Medtronic, Resource Training and Solutions, State of Minnesota Department of Employee Relations, State of Minnesota Department of Human Services, Target Corporation, University of Minnesota and Wells Fargo.

"This effort has the commitment from health plans, support of area employers, the Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement and MN Community Measurement," said Charlie Montreuil, vice president of Corporate Human Resources for Carlson Companies, BHCAG board chair and BTE board member. "BTE will evaluate the impact of this pilot program and roll out this effort nationally in 2009."

In addition to depression care, the Minnesota BTE program already provides rewards for diabetes care and cardiovascular disease treatment.
