The Value to Physicians
As a Support and Alignment Network (SAN), the AMA provides technical assistance to our nation's physicians by improving the current quality of care, increasing patients' access to information and assisting physicians in moving through the phases of practice transformation.
In collaboration with the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services, the AMA:
- Promotes the TCPI goals to the broader health care community
- Uses the AMA STEPS Forward™ practice improvement strategies platform to develop and digitally host educational activities for TCPI participants
- Accelerates the maturation of clinical data registries
- Conducts annual collaborative events to elevate the capabilities of Practice Transformation Networks (PTNs) and SANs
Qualified Clinical Data Registries
The AMA will coordinate resources and tools required to continue maturation at a pace consistent with the TCPI goals to accelerate the maturation of clinical data registries, enable practices to initiate quality improvement programs and adopt quality-based payment models.
The AMA has created a Quality Reporting and Qualified Clinical Data Registries (QCDR) resource collection on the STEPS Forward™ site to provide clinicians with the tools they need to become proficient QCDR users and assist in preparing clinicians for value-based care models.
