Clinician's Perspective

I'm very excited to be part of GLPTN and witness firsthand some of the exciting changes that are taking place in our healthcare system to help promote high quality care. I hope to see the tools of implementation science put to the test to help rapidly disseminate meaningful improvements to healthcare processes and ultimately to patients' lives.Ashley Overley, MD, Assistant Medical Director, Division of Mental Health & Addiction IN Family & Social Services Administration

What GLPTN Offers

GLPTN Reach MapWith more than 15,000 participating clinicians and 36 partner organizations in 5 states, the Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network is the largest practice transformation network or “PTN” in the nation. We’ve banned together to provide you and your staff with multi-layered support.

Guidance One-on-One
Our on-demand advisory team of Quality Improvement Advisors (QIAs) is on hand to ensure that every practice in our network is successful. A QIA will work with you to choose your own improvement priorities in addition those core measures identified by our network (i.e. reductions in unnecessary hospitalizations, tests, and procedures).


Guidance through Education
You’ll benefit from the free resources and support provided by a Support & Alignment Network (SAN) of 10 national organizations. By offering well-conceived and continuous educational events — conferences, webinars, and elearning modules — the SAN and our Network Partners keep you up to date on the latest healthcare best practices.  Some of the training is totally free to PTN-participating clinicians, and some is discounted. Be on the lookout for opportunities to earn CMEs.

In addition, Indiana University offers a 15 credit-hour Graduate Certificate in Innovation and Implementation Science for PTN participants.


Guidance through Community
And you’ll be plugged into Healthcare Communities, where you can interact with other GLPTN members and share lessons learned.
