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.

CT-PTN

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 CT-PTN, administered by the Community Health Center Association of Connecticut (CHCACT), comprises 15 federally-qualified health centers (FQHCs) representing 97 practices and 900+ clinicians across Connecticut. As the only FQHC-centric PTN in the country, CT-PTN brings the full resources of the Transforming Clinical Practices Initiative to 270,000 mostly low-income people in our state. In addition to on-site technical assistance, CT-PTN includes a dynamic learning collaborative, consisting of monthly Clinical Quality Conversations through video-conferencing; quarterly in-person Quality Forums; and, an annual summit. CT-PTN aligns with CT’s State Innovation Model program, to transform care delivery, enhance person-centeredness – and ultimately improve health outcomes for CT residents.
