Arkansas Clinical Transformation Program
The Arkansas Clinical Transformation (ACT) Program provides training, technical assistance, and funding to help primary care clinics in Arkansas improve chronic disease management.
The program's key strategies include:
- Quality improvement training
- Application of the Chronic Care and Institute for Healthcare Improvement Models to facilitate best practices
- Enhancing data management and reporting
- Preparing primary care practices for implementation of National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) accreditation
Eligible applicants include:
- Primary care practices affiliated with a hospital, health system, or practice network
- Independent primary care practices, including family internal medicine or specialty practices that serve as primary care centers for patients
- Federally Qualified Health Centers
- Community Health Centers
Participants will receive a year of intensive training followed by ongoing annual enhanced training, with continuing medical education (CME) credit hours during both phases. Participants will receive grant funds to offset program expenses.
Participants will be required to:
- Support practice redesign and work towards improving patient outcomes
- Participate in monthly meetings and potentially in-person learning sessions
- Submit monthly tests-of-change and performance measure data to ACT faculty
