The Bridges to Excellence mission is to help the best clinicians in the country build their practices, help patients get healthier, and help insurers and employers manage costs better. BTE programs are administered by the Health Care Incentives Institute and designed around three key lessons gained from research and experience. First, it's critical to measure what matters most-the handful of indicators that have truly significant clinical and financial impact. Second, clinicians who follow those quality measures will consistently provide better care at lower costs. Typically, they outperform their peers on process measures of quality, and have lower average costs per patient and per episode. Third, incentives only work if they are fair and designed to increase over time, so clinicians who continually improve their practices are rewarded in kind. The better they get, the more incentives they deserve, and the more patients should be encouraged to utilize them.
The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is a private, not-for-profit organization, dedicated to improving health care quality. Since its founding in 1990, NCQA has been a central figure in driving improvement throughout the health care system, helping to elevate the issue of health care quality to the top of the national agenda. The NCQA seal is a widely recognized symbol of quality. Organizations incorporating the seal into advertising and marketing materials must first pass a rigorous, comprehensive review and must annually report on their performance. For consumers and employers, the seal is a reliable indicator that an organization is well-managed and delivers high quality care and service.
Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is an innovative program for improving primary care.

The Patient Centered Medical Home is a health care setting that facilitates partnerships between individual patients, and their personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patient's family. Care is facilitated by registries, information technology, health information exchange and other means to assure that patients get the indicated care when and where they need and want it in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner.
