About Bridges to Excellence

Our recognition programs, known as Bridges to Excellence (BTE), measure the quality of care delivered in provider practices. We place a special emphasis on managing patients with chronic conditions, who are most at risk of incurring potentially avoidable complications. Our Recognitions cover all major chronic conditions to promote comprehensive care delivery and strong relationships between patients and their care teams. Physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants who meet our performance benchmarks are widely recognized on a number of payer websites as well as private sector transparency tools.
