Population Health

BIDCO’s population health program supports our providers in promoting high-quality, efficient care.  We specifically support the primary care physician (PCP) community through our PCP Advisory Committee that meets monthly and serves as a forum for information exchange with our local PCP Pod Leaders, who in turn educate their Pod members about BIDCO’s medical management initiatives. BIDCO supports specialists by educating PCPs about the importance of in-network specialty care referrals and by providing data on utilization practice pattern variation, prescribing trends, and other specialty specific opportunities for care efficiencies.

BIDCO offers numerous population health services to our provider community, including:

PCP Advisory Committee 

Clinical Data Management

Community Care Management

Quality Management

Pharmacy Management

Disease Management

Clinical Guidelines

 

We also require our providers to have and use a BIDCO-approved electronic health record (EHR) within one year of joining BIDCO.  We believe that EHR technology improves quality of care and is a critical component in coordination of care.  The majority of our providers use either the BIDMC on-campus EHR, WebOMR, or eClinicalWorks. 

If you would like more information about our EHR policy, please contact Scott Samways, Director of Clinical Data Management, at ssamways@bidmc.harvard.edu. Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time with questions or suggestions.
