ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY 2 Annotated Bibliography: Lemak, Christy Harris,PhD., F.A.C.H.E., Cohen, G. R., PhD., Erb, N., & Dhawan, Ajay,M.D., F.A.C.H.E. (2013). Engaging primary care physicians in quality improvement: Lessons from a payer-provider partnership. Journal of Healthcare Management, 58 (6), 429-43; discussion 444- 5. Retrieved from ? url= In this article it talks about the lack of collaboration between physicians and thus that has had a negative impact on quality. Despite increased emphasis on value in the U.S. healthcare system, competing interests among primary care physicians often inhibit collaboration and progress for improvement. And yet, some examples of success can be found. Through several complementary programs, a large payer in Michigan has engaged primary care physicians in the process of quality improvement and system transformation. The "magic bullet" of these efforts is the degree of collaboration achieved among physician practices in local communities, across the state, and with the sponsor. Specifically, beginning in 2008, the state's largest health insurer, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM), encouraged statewide participation in a collection of primary care practice transformation and quality improvement initiatives through its Physician Group Incentive Program (PGIP). Program participants also are eligible for up to 20% increased reimbursement in their evaluation and management office visit fees through the PCMH designation program; they also may bill for care coordination and care management services provided by ancillary staff. To facilitate statewide collaboration and innovation, BCBSM sponsors quarterly meetings and supports collaborative pilot projects to test new approaches toward fostering practice transformation.

With very few exceptions, respondents gave credit to BCBSM for its leadership in developing and implementing PGIP and its role in the creation and support of a vibrant community of practice that now exists in many regions of the state.
