BTE Program implementations are designed to encourage physicians to become recognized for the quality of care they deliver.
All BTE Recognition Programs are based on nationally accepted measures, with an emphasis on intermediate outcomes where available. Measures are scored to create an overall program score where 60 is most often the passing grade, and represents a significant accomplishment for a clinician or practice.
There are two types of incentives that encourage physicians to participate in the Recognitions: public/peer recognition of the achievement, and higher revenue for the practice. It is the latter that is the focus of our national or regional implementations because our research has clearly shown a link between the size of the financial incentives available to a practice and their participation.
BTE Programs don’t have any downside. Clinicians and practices get a complete report on their measures from the clinical data submitted, with benchmarks on performance and peer comparisons. Only those that achieve the passing grade get recognized and can become eligible for incentives. aFor the others, the report is private.
