BCBSNC Announces New Initiative to Connect and Support Independent Primary Care Physicians and Free Clinics across North Carolina to Enhance Quality of Care



Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC), the North Carolina Health Information Exchange (NC HIE) and Allscripts are launching a unique program to place North Carolina at the forefront of health care reform by wiring and connecting physicians across the state.

The collaboration will offer Electronic Health Records (EHR) software - MyWay EHR - to 600 independent primary care physicians (including, Pediatrics, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, General Care, and OB/GYN) and 39 free clinics across North Carolina over the next year at a significantly reduced rate. This collaboration will also fund a training and support program within the NC HIE for MyWay EHR implementation.

The MyWay EHR is 'meaningful use' certified and provides physicians with a simple, easy-to-use solution that seamlessly integrates clinical and business information and works the way your practice works.

The main goal of this collaboration is to improve the health care system in the state, help reduce health care spending and aid practices in becoming HIT (Health Information Technology) compliant. BCBSNC will also assist practices with the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition process and the Blue Quality Physician Program (BQPP), which will result in additional improvements to health care quality and increased reimbursements from BCBSNC to physicians (for BQPP eligible and enrolled practices)

To assist providers in learning more about the NC PATH program, with details regarding the first step - implementing the EHR solution, BCBSNC, NCHIE, Allscripts and AHEC will conduct face-to-face informational dinner sessions in October with interested independent primary care providers throughout the state.

For more details and information, including date/times of the informational dinner sessions, please call toll-free 855-611-7768 or visit www.allscripts.com/ncpath.
