Clinician's Perspective

As a family physician I have not one but two jobs these days: take great care of my patients and continually improve my practice. I look forward to working with the practice improvement facilitators in the Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network to help me do both of these jobs better. An extra pair of skilled hands will be a welcome addition to our improvement team.John Hickner, MD, MSc Professor and Head, Family Medicine University of Illinois at Chicago

The Plan

4-part-change-packageThe Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network (GLPTN) offers a four-part, change package to help shape your practice for the future of healthcare delivery and compensation.

We’re a groundbreaking collaboration among 36 partners — universities, health systems and independent provider-practices — designed to transform the way healthcare is administered to patients.

Backed by funding from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services’ (CMS) Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative*, the GLPTN aims to guide 15,000+ clinicians in five Midwestern states through the five phases of patient-centric practice transformation necessary to effectively participate in value-based payment systems.

Faculty experts from 8 universities are partnering with 28 healthcare-focused organizations and a Support and Alignment Network of 10 national organizations to assist clinicians with the anticipated challenges of preparing for value-based care. Our team is focused on making sure your practice is ahead of the curve – before changes are due.
