Blue Physician Recognition - National
The Blue Physician Recognition (BPR) Program is designed to reinforce Blue Plans’ commitment to quality by providing more meaningful and consistent information on physician quality improvement and recognition on the National Doctor & Hospital Finder site and FEP online directory. A BPR indicator will be used to identify physicians, groups and/or practices who have demonstrated their commitment to delivering quality and patient-centered care by participating in local, national, and/or regional quality improvement programs as determined by the local Blue Plan.
