2010-2013 CoQ Primary Care Program Comparative Results

Since 2006, primary care clinicians participating in the Collaboration on Quality® (CoQ) program have earned incentives for providing high quality, evidenced based patient care to Wellmark members. In 2012 alone, more than 1,000 clinicians participating in the CoQ program served more than 250,000 Wellmark members in Iowa and South Dakota. Other highlights of the 2012 program include:

  • Wellness and Prevention – For the second year, two preventive care suites, Adult Wellness, Prevention and Detection, and Child/Adolescent Wellness, Prevention and Detection, provided an opportunity for participating clinicians to impact population health. These suites also assisted in the identification of patients who are at risk of developing high impact conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, and Type 2 diabetes.
  • Chronic Disease – Through the Diabetes and Hypertension suites, Wellmark members received evidence-based care, which continues to have a positive impact on outcomes.
  • Generic Prescribing – With several high-cost medications going off patent during the previous calendar year, the generic prescribing rate continued to increase. This allowed for lower out-of-pocket costs, keeping medications affordable for Wellmark members.
  • Data Management Tool Upgrades – In 2012, several system upgrades were deployed for the MDinsight data management tool. These upgrades resulted in a faster operating system and enhanced reporting capabilities.

 

The comparison charts on this page reflect data from the 2010 to 2012 CoQ reporting years. They were created using information pulled from MDinsight, which is populated by data submitted by clinicians participating in the CoQ program. The charts do not include data from clinicians with zero patients in a particular suite. For a comparative representation of the results from 2006 to 2011, click here.

Adult Wellness

In 2011, the CoQ program began screening all adult members 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 2 years old during the calendar year of the program has been included in the CoQ program since 2008. In 2011, the CoQ program added a new body mass percentile (BMP) measure for children ages 3 to 17.
