The Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association has launched a new platform on its Axis data analytics infrastructure to collect specific data from all 36 Blues plans that will give consumers with coverage more information when picking a physician while selecting a benefit plan.

Axis holds 36 million provider records and data reflecting more than $350 billion in annual claims, as well as 750,000 patient reviews of physicians. Now, the plans will contribute their cost and quality data to Axis so members going to a Blues website to search for a physician can not only see reviews from others, but also have a better idea of the pricing and quality scores of the physicians being considered.
