doctors to participate

BTE is working closely with the Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative (MAeHC), an initiative of the physician community to bring together the state's major health care stakeholders to establish an electronic medical records system, to accelerate the BTE recognition process and ease the reporting burden for doctors. This is part of BTE's pilots to test the submission of electronic medical record data for performance assessment and rapid feedback loops to physicians. BTE and MAeHC will partner in 2009 to set up the data streams that will allow physicians to voluntarily elect to have their data sent to an independent assessor -- Masspro -- to achieve BTE recognition. The availability of real-time, credible data will make it easier for doctors to participate and health plans to implement pay for performance programs.

"Expanding the number of pathways physicians can achieve recognition by leveraging other local data efforts makes sense not only to reduce the burden on the physicians but from a community perspective so that care is ultimately patient centric," said Micky Tripathi, MAeHC President and CEO.

Through participation in three of BTE's programs -- Physician Office Link, Diabetes Care Link and Cardiac Care Link -- Massachusetts' employers, providers, coalitions and quality improvement organizations are working together to improve care processes and systems of care -- directly impacting and improving the quality of health care delivered to patients in Massachusetts.

"The BTE program recognizes the importance of implementing systems and processes in physician practices to coordinate care to improve quality and patient outcomes," said Judith A. Melin M.A., M.D., Chief Medical Services Officer, Lahey Clinic.
