Errors delay BlueCross of Tennessee's release of doctor data
The Tennessean, March 11, 2008
After doctors questioned the accuracy of information, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee has put on hold plans to share quality of care and cost data about individual doctors with its members. Doctors had been given 60 days before the planned rollout to review their profiles, and some pointed to inaccuracies that included reports saying they didn't perform certain tests when their own records showed otherwise. BlueCross did not say how long the publication schedule would be delayed.
