Purpose

Transforming Clinical Practices Initiative (TCPI) Support and Alignment Networks (SANs) 2.0 will award funding for the establishment and operation of support networks, which will offer support, technical assistance, and expertise to spread healthcare delivery system reform knowledge to the entire TCPI community. TCPI SAN 2.0 will prepare clinical practices for the accelerated adoption of Alternative Payment Models (APMs) on a large scale and at low cost before 2019.

TCPI SAN 2.0 will identify, enroll, and provide technical assistance to clinical practices in order to reduce Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP program expenditures. They will assist practices through the various phases of the transformation process and help them to align their practice to participate in the most suitable APM options that were authorized under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA).
