The Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network is supported by Funding Opportunity Number CMS-1L1-15-003 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
Enrollment Status: Full/Closed
Program Description: From 2015-2019, the Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network (GLPTN) aims to guide 15,000+ clinicians in five states (Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Kentucky and Ohio) through the CMS-identified five phases of patient-centric practice transformation necessary to effectively participate in value-based payment systems.
Faculty experts from Purdue University and seven other schools are partnering with Quality Improvement Advisors (QIAs) to assist providers with the anticipated challenges of preparing for value-based care. QIAs coach providers to help them meet associated milestones as well as clinical and operational results. They work on the providers schedule to:
- enhance clinician participation in the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS);
- establish Chronic Care Management programs within practices and leverage new Medicare billing code changes;
- provide clarity on Quality Payment Program (QPP) 2019 reimbursement adjustments; and
- provide exclusive access to CMEs and other opportunities through Support & Alignment Networks (SANs).
Eligibility: The 3,000+ Indiana providers participating in the GLPTN are those whose practice or hospital is not already participating in a CMS Accountable Care Organization (ACO).
Funding: Purdue Healthcare Advisors and Purdue University are among 32 partners participating in the GLPTN led by Dr. Malaz Boustani, M.D., at the Indiana University School of Medicine, which was awarded $46.4M in September of 2015 by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Other partners include three Regional Extension Centers; seven other universities; three State Departments of Health; and five regional Health Information Exchanges (HIEs).
