The North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) and its Foundation are committed to helping physicians and physician assistants prepare for the new quality payment program under MACRA. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have dedicated millions of dollars to support more than 140,000 clinician practices over the next four years in sharing, adapting and further developing their comprehensive quality improvement strategies through its Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI).
The TCPI is one of the largest federal investments offering nationwide, collaborative and peer-based learning networks to facilitate practice transformation. The initiative is one part of a strategy advanced by the Affordable Care Act to strengthen the quality of patient care and spend health care dollars more wisely.
The NCMS Foundation is partnering with the National Rural Accountable Care Consortium (NRACC) a Provider Transformation Network (PTN) provide free training for practices in North Carolina as part of the TCPI.
This week the NCMS Foundation, in cooperation with the North Carolina Medical Group Management Association, hosted a webinar to demonstrate how NRACC can help providers prepare for the transition to value. Listen to the webinar here.

Once you are part of the PTN, you will be eligible to participate in training workshops throughout the state and have access to educational materials to help your practice make the transition to value.
