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.

Watch the personal accounts of ACP members’ success stories, implementation strategies, and the benefits they are experiencing for both physicians and patients.
