To try to improve care quality and coordination, Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI) will provide primary-care clinicians with a new data and analytics platform..
The platform — Blue Insights for Rhode Island — will be available free to all primary-care clinicians in the state. It will give providers access to patient-care registries, which BCBSRI says will help them identify care gaps and emerging health concerns among individual patients.
The platform will offer tools to encourage medication adherence, remind patients about scheduling tests or follow-up visits and track patients who have chronic conditions.
The platform’s use of “comprehensive analysis of payer and provider data” will also help providers make informed choices about specialty physicians, facilities and treatments, the insurer said. The next phase of the Blue Insights platform will be to provide new self-service reporting capabilities for providers.
