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:
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.

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.
Diabetes performance levels reflect the number of clinicians for each performance level. Level 3 is the highest level achievable.
Hypertension performance levels reflect the number of clinicians for each performance level. Level 3 is the highest level achievable.
