What is Bridges to Excellence?

Bridges to Excellence is a program offered by the Health Care Incentives Improvement Institute which is a non-profit organization, guided by a Board of Directors that includes physicians, employers, health plans, and others. Our goal from the start has been to recognize and reward clinicians who have implemented comprehensive solutions in the management of patients, and deliver safe, timely, effective, efficient, equitable and patient-centered care. As such, BTE/HCI3 does not charge clinicians or receive payment from clinicians for BTE assessment. HCI3 does not profit from the Recognition programs and supports the effort from operating funds as part of its mission to improve the quality and affordability of health care in the US. Premier is the Performance Assessment Organization (PAO) for the BTE Recognition Programs, and does charge a subscription fee for participation.

Recognition and Rewards

Once you are recognized, you may be eligible for incentives from participating health plans, public or private payers. Other distinctions include preferred network eligibility and fee schedule increases. Check with your health plans for more information on the incentives for which you may be eligible.


Your scoring choice determines the cost of the assessment. Individual scoring assessments are $145 per clinician and a group scoring assessment is $395 per 3-20 clinicians. Practices that elect to be scored as a group share the same results.
Pricing is subject to change.
