Why BlueWorks is Important
  • Dominant forces at play in all markets
  • Weaknesses in quality of care
  • Disparities in care
  • Rising costs of care
  • The uninsured
  • No clear solutions at the national level
  • Local market innovations are needed to drive
    change

Local Innovation
  • Healthcare in the U.S. is improved by bottom up
    approach
  • Local leaders within Blue Cross and Blue Shield
    Plans are able to work with providers and
    patients to develop new approaches to improving
    quality, cost and access
  • Local markets are ideal for initial dissemination
    (local pride) that can then be expanded
    nationally
