HCI3:Boards of Bridges to Excellence and PROMETHEUS Payment have merged.

"Late last year the Boards of Bridges To Excellence and PROMETHEUS Payment agreed to merge. As part of that merger, the new organization was named the Health Care Incentives Improvement Institute, or HCI3. And while the people haven't changed, the sum is certainly greater than the parts. Under HCI3 we now have a broad array of quality measurement tools - the Bridges To Excellence Recognitions - and cost measurement tools - the PROMETHEUS Payment Evidence-informed Case Rates. All these tools are available in our implementation sites and to our implementation partners, and we have already developed several creative ways in which they can be combined to significantly improve the current payment incentives in health care."
