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

Why GLPTN?

The Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network offers a four-part change package – including elements of implementation science, Lean and Six Sigma, population health management, and CMS compliance – to help you shape your practice for the future of healthcare delivery and compensation at no cost to you.

Implementation Science: We’ll show you how to identify the areas of your practice that could benefit from improvement, as well as those areas that should get the most immediate attention.

Lean and Six Sigma: We’ll help you improve the flow of your workplace, so you can make changes to your processes as soon as you see the need for them.

Personalized Population Health Methods: We’ll help you report data for patient groups with certain core conditions – such as diabetes, depression, or heart disease – so that treatments that benefit the population become clear.

CMS Compliance: We’ll prepare you to meet existing CMS compliance programs like PQRS, Meaningful Use, and the Value Based Modifier. We’ll also help you get ready for new performance-based compliance standards and qualify for performance incentives under MIPS.
