Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPi)

TCPi practices get top MIPS score

Practices engaged in the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPi) are reporting success with the Merit Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). Two TCPi practices received a MIPS score of 100 and many others score in the 90s, which means they will get positive payment adjustments. More than 90% of MIPS-eligible providers in TCPi have reported and will avoid a negative payment adjustment, due to their work.

Join them. Practices must submit performance data before March 31 to avoid penalties and potentially earn a positive payment adjustment under MIPS, one of two options to participation in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid System Quality Payment Program (QPP). SIM and TCPi practices are uniquely qualified for success in QPP due to the work they're doing with their practice facilitators and CHITAs. Get details on what practices need to submit for MIPS as well as advanced alternative payment models (the other track in QPP) through the Colorado QPP website.

Many of the practices that received 90-100 on their MIPS reporting acknowledge the help they received from TCPi-funded clinical health information technology advisors (CHITAs) to prepare them!

The Transforming Clinical Practices Initiative (TCPi) is a free, federally funded support network that will help you and your care team navigate provider compensation changes coming soon as a result of the Medicare Quality Payment Program (also known as MACRA) and commercial insurance companies moving to value-based payment. You do not need to be a Medicare provider to participate. We are pleased to announce that TCPI is close to capacity (2,000 clinicians). If you are interested in learning more about the program please contact us to schedule a personal phone call with a TCPI team member. Click here for a timeline.

Docs designing healthcare reform

Listen in to a discussion about how the Transforming Clinical Practices Initiative (TCPi) empowers doctors in Colorado to redesign the healthcare system to support the delivery of high-quality care with Carol Greenlee, MD, FACE, FACP, owner, Western Slope Endocrinology, Grand Junction, state and national faculty for TCPi; Barbara Martin, RN, MSN, ACNP-BC, MPH, director, Colorado State Innovation Model; and Allyson Gottsman, program manager, Colorado Health Extension System:  

Primary goal: 

The Colorado PTN will prepare clinicians to be successful with new models of compensation that require new models of care delivery, effective care coordination, and demonstrated value of care. 

Why it matters:

MACRA legislation is set to make a major change in compensation with significant “carrots and sticks” What you don’t know, and don’t prepare for, can hurt you.

  • Use federal funds to get ahead of the curve on this major change
  • Improve the experience of care for patients, providers and care teams
  • Support provider well-being
  • Demonstrate health care value: high quality with lower cost per patient

Who can participate:

Only 2000 Colorado clinicians and their staff will be able to participate in TCPi. This includes both independent and system practices.
