A Message to the CHITREC Community Regarding Our COVID-19 Actions

Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network (GLPTN)

Healthcare is changing. The Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network (GLPTN) can help providers prepare. 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. The goal of practice transformation is higher-quality care – more carefully coordinated and with fewer unnecessary tests and procedures – leading to better care, fewer hassles, and lower costs.

Northwestern University, in partnership with other leading healthcare organizations, is heading the Illinois arm of the three-state quality improvement effort funded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Enrollment for 4,500 providers in Illinois is underway.
