A multi-stakeholder approach to creating incentives for quality

The Physician Office Link is a Bridges to Excellence program designed to create significant leaps in the quality of care by recognizing and rewarding health care providers who demonstrate that they have implemented comprehensive solutions in the management of patients and deliver safe, timely, effective, efficient, equitable and patient-centered care.

Physician Office Link enables physician office sites to qualify for bonuses based on their implementation of specific processes to reduce errors and increase quality. They can earn up to $55 per year for each patient covered by a participating employer or plan. In addition, a report card for each physician office describes its performance on the program measures, and is made available to the public.
