Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPi)

New payment models for medical care are here, and ACP is committed to helping U.S. clinicians be well-prepared. You are not alone!

CMS launched TCPi in 2015 to help 140,000 clinicians get ready for value-based payment by providing free tools, resources and coaching to improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs. TCPi funded 29 groups, called Practice Transformation Networks (PTNs), to enroll and work directly with clinicians and practices on improvement activities. It also funded 10 Support and Alignment Networks (SANs) to assist the PTNs and educate their own members about value-based payment and practice transformation.  ACP is one of the 10 SANs.  

PTN Recruitment

One of ACP’s roles as a SAN is to refer eligible practices to PTNs. As of December 2016, ACP has referred over 3,000 physicians to PTNs nationwide! Some PTNs are still accepting new enrollees; if you are interested in joining one or learning more about this FREE help, please contact san@acponline.org for more information. 

Additional Resources from ACP 

Whether or not you join a PTN, ACP has many resources to help you prepare for the new reimbursement program (now called the Quality Payment Program or QPP):

ACP Practice Advisor®* - Online tool focused on improving the process and structure of care in your practice. This tool was initially designed to help a practice become a certified patient centered medical home. Key modules with QPP relevance include: Improve Quality, Care Coordination, Manage Populations, Avoid Unnecessary Testing, and Improve Medication Adherence. CME/MOC eligible.

ACP Interactive High Value Care cases (CME/MOC) and toolkit  - Clinicians can learn to improve health, avoid harms, and eliminate wasteful practices by doing these online cases and answering multiple choice questions.

ACP Quality Improvement Opportunities  - Quality Connect Program; PDSA resources, Practice Assessment tools, PQRS reporting tool.

ACP Genesis Registry - Multispecialty qualified clinical data registry (QCDR) for quality improvement that supports 64 electronic clinical quality measures aligned with value-based payment programs.

ACP Quality Payment Advisor (coming soon!) - Interactive tool to help physicians understand QPP and determine whether to choose MIPS or APM track.

For detailed information about the Quality Payment Program, see the excellent CMS website.
