Inside Look: One Payer’s Approach to Quality Scoring

Selecting a new physician can be a real head-scratcher for consumers. While people consider location, personal references and out-of-pocket costs, health plans can also provide clear information on provider quality to help guide their members to good decisions.

Wellmark, in conjunction with its consumer transparency partner, HealthSparq, displays a quality score that’s shared as a numeric index rating summarizing a primary care physician’s performance against various quality measures. It’s enabling users to assess a physician’s quality at a glance.
