The Compass Practice Transformation Network (Compass PTN) supports more than 7,000 clinicians across six states – Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma and South Dakota – who are committed to expanding quality improvement capacity in their primary and specialty care practices, share clinical best practices and achieve common goals of improved care, better health and reduced cost.

Established by the Iowa Healthcare Collaborative and five other state-based partners, the Compass PTN will have collective responsibility for bringing together eligible primary and specialty care clinicians in support of achieving the TCPI Goals and Aims.
