Resurrection Health Care Preferred Doctors Earn 42 out of 44 Possible Stars in Blue Cross Blue Shield 2010 Blue Star Report

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - December 6, 2010) - Physicians in three out of four medical groups of Resurrection Health Care Preferred (RHCP) have earned 11 blue stars -- a perfect score -- in the 2010 Blue Star Report. The report is a ranking of HMO contracting medical group physicians that have documented high levels of performance in providing patient care from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL). The Resurrection Health Care Preferred groups earning 11 stars are: Saint Joseph Health Preferred, Saint Mary and Elizabeth Health Preferred and Saint Francis Health Preferred. One group, Resurrection Health Preferred, earned 9 out of 11 stars.

Of the 96 Chicagoland medical groups surveyed, only eight received all 11 blue stars, three of which were part of Resurrection Health Care Preferred. All of the Resurrection Health Care Preferred medical groups received the Blue Ribbon designation -- awarded for high patient satisfaction. All of the patients who had RHCP doctors rated their overall satisfaction with their doctor at above 91%.

The medical group's doctors earn a blue star every time they meet or exceed the target care goal in each of the eleven reporting categories, including asthma care, breast cancer screenings, cardiovascular disease, childhood immunizations, controlling high blood pressure, colorectal screenings, diabetes care, influenza vaccinations, mental health follow-up, cervical cancer screenings and patient safety.
