The Kentucky REC is Kentucky’s state-level lead for the Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network (GLPTN). GLPTN is part of a national effort to help health care professionals – from doctors and nurses to social workers and pharmacists – coordinate care, lower costs, and improve the health of American citizens. We’re a groundbreaking collaboration among 36 partners — universities, health systems and independent provider-practices — designed to transform the way healthcare is administered to patients.
Backed by funding from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services’ (CMS) Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative, the GLPTN aims to guide 15,000+ clinicians in five Midwestern states through the five phases of patient-centric practice transformation necessary to effectively participate in value-based payment systems.
Kentucky REC supports 1,938 providers in Kentucky with practice transformation and preparation for Alternative Payment Models (APMs) through this program.
