National Rural Accountable Care Consortium Practice Transformation Network

Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI)

Practice transformation network assists practices in building key components of a population health management program, with the goals of improving health, reducing costs, and enabling practices to participate in value-based payment models. Practices will be assigned a project manager and practice improvement manager who will provide technical assistance, education, and support. Key areas of focus include:

  • Establishing billable care coordination services for Medicare patients
  • Redesigning the practice to better manage population health through data analytics
  • Increasing practice revenue and clinician satisfaction
