Our Goals

The Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network (GLPTN) is a groundbreaking collaboration among 33 partners from universities, health systems, and providers designed to transform the way health care is administered to patients. Backed by funding from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS), our goals are to accomplish the following outcomes together by 2019:

  • To provide better care to patients, at a lower cost, for better health outcomes for 10 million patients across Indiana, Michigan, and Illinois
  • To partner with 11,500 providers to transform their practice in preparation for upcoming health care mandates and share their learnings
  • To empower clinicians by delivering personalized resources tailored to each practice’s needs and offering the best customer service possible

We are thrilled to share that GLPTN is the third largest partnership in the United States designed to transform our healthcare system, and we are grateful for CMS’ financial and technical support.

We believe that by working together and leveraging the expertise of our partners we can better serve patients and empower clinicians who make us well. If you feel the same, we invite you to submit an application. We look forward to working with you.
