Compass Practice Transformation Network (Compass PTN) is one of 29 Practice Transformation Networks (PTN) funded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide hands-on quality improvement support and peer-based learning networks to clinicians for the purpose of developing the skills and tools needed to improve care delivery and prepare for successful performance in the value-based health care environment. Compass PTN is administrating the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI) in Georgia that helps physicians and clinicians transition form volume- to value-based care. The TCPI model assists clinicians in improving the way they deliver care.

The Georgia Hospital Association Research and Education Foundation continues partnership with the Medical Association of Georgia to recruit physicians for TCPI. 

Providing Clinicians and Physicians with the Support and Tools to Thrive in Value-Based Care

The Georgia Hospital Association (GHA) is actively recruiting Georgia physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners (clinicians) to join the Compass Practice Transformation Network (PTN), which is part of the national initiative Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI) and aims to help physicians and clinicians achieve large-scale health transformation in primary and specialty care practice settings. The Compass PTN, established by the Iowa Healthcare Collaborative, supports physicians and clinicians across six states in Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma and South Dakota.

GHA quality advisors will work with physicians and clinicians to achieve the five phases of transformation to prepare for the 2019 alternative payment models while improving and sustaining quality care practices.

Benefits include:

  • Improved health outcomes for patients;
  • Improved care coordination through connectivity;
  • Better-engaged patients and families in their care;
  • Improved patient, clinician and staff satisfaction; and
  • Reduced overall cost of care.
