The Physician Efficiency, Appropriateness and Quality (PEAQ) program measures a physician’s performance around efficiency, appropriateness and quality to achieve more optimal patient outcomes and effective care delivery. Physicians that meet inclusion requirements are provided with reports that show how their performance compares to peers’ performance within the same geographic location and working specialty. All Texas providers practicing within the PEAQ working specialties and report timeframe are included in PEAQ.
Provider Performance Insights (PPIs) will show how a physician was evaluated and where they rank in comparison to peers. PPIs will also include actionable insights to improve future performance. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas initially developed PEAQ with input from practicing physicians and will continue to collaborate with physicians to improve the program. The methodology that corresponds to the PPIs can be found here.
The PPI PDF reports will be available in August 2022 on Availity® for qualified providers in the following specialties:
In August and September, the PEAQ reporting team will offer PEAQ 101. In these sessions, the team will provide a brief overview of the score cards and address pre-submitted questions. Register for these sessions below and submit questions here.
