2011 Collaboration on Quality Primary Care Program Results

The 2011 Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield Collaboration on Quality Primary Care Program included two wellness suites and two chronic disease suites. Two new wellness suites introduced in 2011 gave providers the opportunity to identify patients who are at risk for developing high impact conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

 

Here are the 2011 program results by area:

Please note that the number of members reflects the total number of members in each suite.

Adult Wellness

2011 was the first year that all adult members were screened for body mass index (BMI). If a member’s BMI was equal to or greater than 25, a fasting glucose was expected to be performed. For any member age 40 years and older, a Framingham risk assessment was performed.

A childhood immunization measure for children turning two during the calendar year of the program has been included in the CoQ program since 2008. In 2011, Wellmark added a new body mass percentile (BMP) measure for children ages 3 to 17.
