PTN Best Practices Podcast: “#MidSouthSummits” with Thomas and Kirkland

The Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative is all about helping practices prepare to thrive in a value-based payment environment. Over the last 4 years, we’ve worked with over 100 practices, more than 4,000 clinicians, and in 4 states to this end. We have much to celebrate. 

Episode 13 is a special one where our Best Practices hosts, Dr. Thomas Spain and Kirkland Ahern-Jones, discuss the first two MidSouth PTN Summer Summits that occured in July 2019. Practice representatives gathered with practice coaches, TCPI staff and leadership, and CMS leadership for these regional summits to celebrate their transformation journeys. Summit participants discussed what they’ve learned through TCPI and what is expected from the healthcare system going forward. These Summer Summits were held in Memphis with the Baptist Memorial Health Care Corporation network and Nashville with the Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network. The final Summer Summit will take place in August with our Safety Net practices. For a refreshing reminder about the big picture and the tangible successes from TCPI transformation, tune in Episode 13: “MidSouthSummits” with Thomas and Kirkland.
