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.

The goal of empanelment is for the physician to ensure a population of established patients receive the optimal care. Caring for a finite number of patients allows the provider and care team to focus more directly on the needs of each patient. Empanelment allows practices to better manage supply and demand, thereby enhancing patient access and continuity.

LAPTN’s coaching team created a comprehensive user-friendly empanelment toolkit. As part of the toolkit, there is an Access Database tool that gathers visit history data and applies the 4-cut method, along with a manual on how to use the tool. Also included are slide decks for training, a sample empanelment policy, and other panel management resources that can be used to fulfill the TCPI Practice Assessment Tool milestone to assign all patients to a provider panel. The resources are located in the HC Portal Resource Center or click here.
