Northern New England Practice Transformation Network

On September 29, 2015, Maine Quality Counts (QC) was one of 29 healthcare collaborative networks selected by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) to participate in the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPi), a national effort designed to help clinicians achieve large-scale health transformation in primary and specialty care practice settings.

As a four-year initiative, the Northern New England Practice Transformation Network (NNE-PTN) directly supports sites in achieving the “Quadruple Aim” of healthier people, better patient care, smarter spending, and increased joy for provider teams in their work. NNE-PTN works with practices to align desired changes in care delivery with excellent patient experience.

Our network is a collaborative effort involving trusted organizations and over 2000 clinicians in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. We help practices navigate through five phases of transformation, ultimately preparing them to participate successfully in an Advanced Alternative Payment Model.  An Alternative Payment Model (APM) is a payment approach that rewards providers for delivering high-quality and cost-efficient care. Advanced APMs are models that have both upside and downside risk.

In the next year, NNE-PTN will be providing claims data on cost/utilization, assisting sites to successfully participate in the Health Information Exchange, and guiding sites to attain benefits through the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).
