Nurse Practitioner Support and Alignment Network

npsupportandalignmentimageAANP and its partner, the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC) are administering a Nurse Practitioner Support and Alignment Network (NP SAN) for the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPi), a new program supported by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The NP SAN will promote nurse practitioner participation in this historic quality improvement initiative.

Background

The Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPi) is one CMS’ largest federal investments uniquely designed to support Nurse Practitioners (NPs) with the upcoming changes to the health care system. By 2019, Medicare Part-B payments to health care providers will be closely tied to quality reporting, resource use, and meaningful use of electronic health records – otherwise known as the Quality Payment Program (QPP). AANP wants NPs to be prepared, which is why we have partnered with the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC) to form the Nurse Practitioner Support and Alignment Network (NP SAN). The NP SAN works to support NPs who will be impacted by the QPP through free continuing education, referral to complimentary technical assistance & training (Practice Transformation Networks), and access to specialized evidenced-based tools. Nurse Practitioners in either nurse-led or physician-led health care settings are eligible to receive these program benefits.

The Nurse Practitioner Support and Alignment Network is a program of NNCC and supported via a National Cooperative Agreement with CMS.
