ANN ARBOR, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Altarum Institute is leading the Michigan arm of the Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network (GLPTN), a three-state quality improvement effort funded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
And enrollment is now open for up to 4,000 Michigan providers!
The GLPTN efforts in Michigan will focus on providing high-value, clinically relevant, and cost-efficient assistance to 4,000 clinicians in their pursuit of patient-centric practice transformation. Services delivered by Altarum quality improvement advisors will consist of practice coaching and quality improvement initiatives with techniques built on the principles of implementation science, lean process improvement, and population health management. The advisors will also help physicians navigate quality reporting requirements and participate in the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) and other value-based payment initiatives.
Eligibility: Providers eligible to receive this technical assistance include primary and specialty care physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and their respective ambulatory practices. Please note that providers are not eligible to participate if they currently participate in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP), Pioneer Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), or the CMS Multi-Payer Advanced Primary Care Practice (MiPCT in MI), or are receiving services from one of the other 28 CMS-designated practice transformation networks. Providers who do not accept any Medicare or Medicaid patients are also ineligible.
