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

The Plan

The 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.
