Internists praise primary care practices inclusion in CPCI
Date:8/22/2012

WASHINGTON The American College of Physicians (ACP) today praised the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for its announcement of primary care practices to participate in a historic public-private partnership to strengthen primary care, the Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative (CPCI).

In support of more effective, affordable, and higher quality health care, 500 primary care practices in seven regions have been selected to participate in a new partnership among payers from CMS, state Medicaid agencies, commercial health plans, self-insured businesses, and primary care providers. The partnership is designed to provide improved access to quality health care at lower costs.

"The Administration and the CMS deserve tremendous credit for advancing this vital initiative, which moves to another critical stage with today's announcement," said ACP president David L. Bronson, MD, FACP. "We are extraordinarily pleased with the CPCI's focus on patient-centered care and practice redesign."

Simultaneously, participating commercial, state, and other federal insurance plans are also offering enhanced payment to primary care practices that are designed to support them in providing high-quality primary care on behalf of their members.

"The CPCI is an important step in supporting patient-centered medical homes," said Robert A. Gluckman, MD, FACP, chairman of ACP's Medical Practice and Quality Committee and chief medical officer for a participating payer in Oregon.
