Boston - Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (BCBSMA) and Atlanta-based health care information technology company MDdatacor Inc. will begin work on a pilot project utilizing health information technology to collect and analyze patient medical records to provide the treating physicians with reports that identify patients whose current treatment does not achieve published clinical guidelines.

MDdatacor's Web-based product gathers patient medical records from electronic medical records, transcribed office notes and lab results received directly from the treating physicians and combines it with the claims and pharmacy data received from the health insurers into a searchable database. This information is analyzed and used in support of pay-for-performance, physician-centric disease management, and portable electronic health record programs.  MDdatacor and BCBSMA will offer the solution to a select group of physicians in Massachusetts over the next several months and the pilot program will continue for approximately one year. Financial terms were not disclosed.  Source: Business Wire, MDdatacor Inc.
