Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network (GLPTN)

 

Enrollment Status: Full/Closed

ABOUT

GLPTNFrom 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).
