part of the Bridges to Excellence (BTE) initiative, there
are two consumer web-based tools - Diabetes
CareRewards and Physician
Quality Ratings tool allows individuals to view recognized
physicians as part of the overall BTE program and rate their
experience of care. This is a historic initiative - the first
site where patients share their experiences with individual
physicians in a fair and organized manner.
CareRewards program is designed to encourage patients
to take a more active role in managing chronic illnesses through
an on-line customized care management tool. This innovative
tool allows individuals to record self-care activities, learn
more about their illness, and earn reward points toward a
range of incentives.
