A New Way of Caring for Long-term Conditions

Close to half of everyone in the United States lives with “chronic” or long-term health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease or kidney disease. That’s more than 145 million people.

Chronic diseases represent more than 75% of all healthcare costs in America. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana is leading the way to help primary care doctors redesign healthcare for patients. We want to get better results for patients with long-term diseases.

Patients who receive their primary care services from a Quality Blue Primary Care (QBPC) physician will have the benefit of a full care team—both their own doctors and the Blue Cross staff—working together to improve their health. Blue Cross will provide QBPC doctors with the support and resources they need to work closely with their patients with certain chronic conditions. Patients will benefit from improved care coordination because their doctors will have actionable data right at their fingertips to make the most of office visits and promote exceptional health outcomes. And Blue Cross will reward doctors for giving care that produces better health. Everyone wins.
