Date:7/27/2009

utcomes measures to help increase patient compliance.

"Our case managers have been calling patients who are eligible for the pilot project, and the patients absolutely love it. We've been able to provide patients with additional resources and education. Furthermore, we are able to encourage patients to make diet and exercise changes as well as schedule appointments for their concerns before the problem gets worse," said Jennifer O'Donnell, director of quality improvement for Palmetto Primary Care Physicians.

There is no copayment or extra charge to the patients for participation in the pilot.

Dr. Laura Long, BlueCross' vice president of clinical quality and health management, and Dr. Kirt Caton from Palmetto Primary Care Physicians addressed the South Carolina Academy of Family Physicians at a meeting in Litchfield Beach, S.C., on Saturday. "As the debate continues nationally about health care reform, we're already on the cutting edge with this new look at delivering health care," Dr. Long said. "We've been invited to address a number of meetings of business and medical societies."

"The goal is to reduce the disconnects in health care, improve quality of life for the patient, create tighter relationships and better communications, and add for the first time a focus on measurement of quality and continuous improvement of clinical outcomes. We're pleased to work with BlueCross, BlueChoice HealthPlan and the State Health Plan and their diabetic members in this pilot and believe this could be a state model," said David L. Castellone, M.D, president of the Palmetto Primary Care Physicians board of directors.

Headquartered in North Charleston, S.C., Palmetto Primary Care Physicians (www.PalmettoPrimaryCare.com) has 57 providers and 350 employees in 19 clinics located in Charleston, Dorchester and Berkeley c
