In healthcare, we use a lot of acronyms and numbers – TCPi and SNE-PTN are no exception.
So what is TCPi? TCPi is the Transforming Clinical Practices Initiative, which is funded by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), whose aim is to assist 140,000 clinicians to improve the way they deliver care by providing technical assistance support for quality and process improvement. With $685M in awards to 29 practice transformation networks and 10 support and alignment networks, it is one of the largest federal investments designed to support clinicians in all 50 states through peer-based learning networks.
How is SNE-PTN linked to TCPi? The Southern New England Practice Transformation Network (SNE-PTN) is one of the 29 original networks in TCPi and it is led by UMass Medical School (UMass) and UConn Health. Our goal is to enroll 5400 clinicians in Massachusetts (MA), Connecticut (CT) and beyond and provide free technical assistance to assist primary care and specialty practices achieve the quadruple aim: better care, healthier people, smarter spending and joy in work-life for clinicians and staff.
