Imagine a health care system that is seamless – one in which patients and health care professionals work together to develop plans that meet all of the patient’s health needs. In this system, patients and families engage as partners in care through regular and reliable contact with their health care professional team. The team knows them as individuals and knows the health conditions that led them to seek care. The team is available by telephone, email, as well as in-person. In this system, patients can rely on health professionals functioning at the top of their game and following a plan that the patient and family helped create.  Information flows smoothly and everyone gets the right care, at the right time, and at a cost that is reasonable and easy to understand.  A system of care like this will produce fewer unnecessary hospital admissions and readmissions, will cause fewer healthcare-associated infections, will harm fewer patients, and will show continuous improvement in quality outcomes and cost efficiency.

Secretary Burwell today announced the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will administer over the next 4 years.We are proud to be part of this effort to engage with clinicians and their practices as we work together to advance health care in America. Through the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative, clinicians and their practices will have the tools to improve the quality of care they provide, while keeping down costs.
