Servicing Primary Care, Specialty & Behavioral Health Clinicians in Connecticut & Massachusetts
University of Massachusetts Medical School and the University of Connecticut Medical School are collaborating together to create the Southern New England Practice Transformation (SNE-PTN). The SNE-PTN aims to engage approximately 5,400 clinicians through the readiness phases of practice transformation, preparing participants to adopt new payment models that reward improved clinical outcomes, and reduce hospitalizations and other unnecessary testing.
Quality improvement advisors will train, educate, and coach practices in the transformation phases. The SNE-PTN is creating a shared-learning experience that emphasize the value of collaboration, innovation and data-driven, evidence-based decision making. The SNE-PTN focuses on clinical measures related to diabetes, asthma, heart failure, and key aspects of geriatric care, targeting measurable and significant improvement.
