FREE Practice Transformation Support

The Transforming Clinical Practices Initiative (TCPI) will bring free practice improvement support, coaching and training to more than 140,000 clinicians throughout the country. Health and Human Services is awarding $685 million to 29 Practice Transformation Networks (PTNs) to support clinicians and their practices. Four PTNs are working with family physicians in California. Contact Sonia Kantak, CAFP’s Manager of Medical Practice Affairs, at skantak@familydocs.org for more information.


Practices participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program, Pioneer ACO Program, Multi-Payer Advanced Primary Care Practice or the Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative are not eligible to receive technical assistance from the TCPI program.

 

Practice Transformation Networks:

LA Care - NOT RECRUITING

The network aims to engage 3,100 clinicians and will use funding to enhance routine care for patients with diabetes and/or depression at high risk for hospitalization, optimize transitions to community care settings after acute hospitalization, increase frequency of medication reconciliation and improve patient medication education and management in all care settings. Strategic use of key technologies at the point of care in support of these priorities will help prevent initial and repeat hospitalizations, and coaches will provide onsite and remote support to all practices in performing activities and achieving milestones detailed for each phase of transformation.

Pacific Business Group on Health – CQC – NOT RECRUITING

The network aims to engage nearly 5,000 primary care and specialty clinicians by leveraging an existing multi-payer, multi-stakeholder network system. The network will provide two tiers of coaching and peer-to-peer network support for provider organization leaders leading transformation within their systems and for practice coaches hired by the provider organizations to work intensively with a subset of clinicians. The network will also provide two tiers of data feedback on a set of triple-aim measures common across Medicare, commercial and Medicaid payers, and support provider organizations in strengthening technology and human-operated systems.

NOTE: Pacific Business Group on Health's model works contracts with large health systems (200+ clinicians) in their practice transformation work and does NOT work directly with independent physicians.
