Quality Blue

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana offers its network providers opportunities to earn recognition, additional payments and other incentives through Quality Blue, a new series of innovative healthcare quality improvement programs.

In keeping with its mission, Blue Cross has taken a leadership role in developing programs that reward doctors for quality improvements that get better health results for patients while making healthcare more affordable.

Quality Blue programs recognize those physicians who are working in partnership with Blue Cross to transform healthcare systems and improve the way care is delivered to Blue Cross members – their patients – to help them achieve better health outcomes.

Blue Distinction
The Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association offers this national program, in which local Blue Plans, including Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana, award Blue Distinction designations to recognize providers and medical facilities that have demonstrated expertise in delivering high-quality, efficient, value-based and patient-centered care.

Consumer Engagement
We offer several consumer engagement programs such as Blue Physician Recognition, Patient Reviews and Physician Quality Measurement (PQM) to assist Blue members nationwide in selecting quality physicians.

Hospital Quality and Value Improvement Program (HQVIP)
HQVIP rewards hospitals for enacting measures that improve safety and quality by offering the facilities opportunities to earn incentives for these efforts.

Quality Blue Primary Care (QBPC)
We are leading healthcare system transformation with Quality Blue Primary Care (QBPC), a population health and quality improvement program that rewards doctors for getting better results for patients.

Quality Blue Value Partnerships (QBVP)
This quality program is designed to incentivize providers to improve quality and reduce costs for a defined patient population by rewarding the providers with a percentage of net savings achieved as a result of their efforts.
