Support & Alignment Network for Patient, Caregiver and Community Engagement

With support from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI) is designed to assist more than 140,000 clinician practices over the next four years (2015-2019) through nationwide, collaborative, and peer-based learning networks that facilitate large-scale practice transformation. This is the largest investment by the federal government in clinical transformation support with $685 million in funding allocated to 39 national and regional collaborative healthcare transformation networks and supporting organizations.  

As a Support & Alignment Network (SAN) in this initiative, the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC) will provide support to patient and family partners, along with practices and PTN’s across the U.S. to promote more meaningful patient partnerships in quality improvement and community collaboration with care teams. Our goal is to help participating clinicians partner with patients and families to achieve TCPI’s phases of transformation and associated milestones, resulting in improved care, better health, and reduced costs. This work will be done in partnership with The Institute for Patient- and Family-Centered Care, Planetree, and YMCA of the USA.
