What is the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative and the Practice Transformation Network?

The New York State Practice Transformation Network (NYSPTN) is a statewide learning network designed to coach, mentor, and assist clinicians in developing core competencies necessary to transform their practices and thrive in an emerging healthcare environment that emphasizes value of care. The NYSPTN embraces and supports the "quadruple aim" of better care, better health, lower costs, and greater provider satisfaction.

Funded by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the NYSPTN is part of the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI), which will work with more than 140,000 clinician practices nationally over the next four years. TCPI will help practices develop quality improvement strategies, and navigate the complex healthcare environment and multiple transformation-related initiatives currently underway.

NYSPTN is informed by the structure of the highly successful Regional Extension Center (REC) program that assisted physicians to adopt and meaningfully use electronic health records as well as several successful practice transformation initiatives.
