Be Part of the Nation’s Healthcare Transformation

The Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI) will assist 140,000 clinicians in improving the way they deliver care by providing technical assistance support for integrating quality and process improvement, and by building on and spreading existing change methodologies, practice transformation tools, published literature, and technical assistance programs. Clinicians that will be supported by TCPI include primary and specialty physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, clinical pharmacists, and their practices.

Opportunities to Get Involved

Clinicians who would like to take part in this vital effort should contact a Practice Transformation Network (PTN) serving their state. 

PTNs are peer-based learning networks, organized across the country, that have responsibility for enrolling and supporting the 140,000 clinicians that will take part in TCPI.

Health Visions Delmarva PTN

“Meeting our practices where they are.”

TCPI is supported by a national network of Practice Transformation Networks (PTNs) and Support and Alignment Networks (SANs). These dedicated organizations provide technical assistance to TCPI’s 140,000 enrolled clinicians.

The HealthVisions Delmarva (HVD) PTN, administered by HealthVisions Delmarva, a collaboration between Bayhealth in Delaware and Peninsula Regional Health System in Maryland, serves practices throughout the Delmarva Peninsula as well as practices on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay and in some areas of Pennsylvania. Currently, HVD is working with almost 2,000 clinicians in 300 practices to improve the quality of care they provide and to ultimately reduce healthcare costs across the population. Deploying a variety of interventions including assessment, planning, 1:1 coaching from practice advisors, monthly webinars, a YouTube channel, the HealthCareCommunities.org website, and frequent email updates, we are connecting our practices with the vast resources of the TCPI community and teaching them to be “learning organizations,” prepared for whatever comes their way in the ever-changing healthcare industry.

By “meeting our practices where they are” we are customizing our interventions to their needs and level of readiness and moving them through the important phases of setting aims, using data, achieving success and reaching benchmark status, preparing them for a successful future.
