Request Direct Technical Assistance

This help comes from professional and experienced on-the-ground organizations that are able to assist you at no cost.

Large Practices

Large practices have more than 15 clinicians. We have selected external assistance providers (Quality Innovation Network QIN-QIOs) throughout the country that can help large practices participate in the Quality Payment Program.

QIN-QIO Assistance Providers

Small Practices

Small practices that have 15 or fewer clinicians, including those in rural locations, health professional shortage areas, and medically underserved areas, can find customized technical assistance on the Support for Small, Underserved, and Rural Practices page.

Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI)

The CMS supported Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI) helps you and more than 140,000 other clinicians to share, adapt, and develop comprehensive quality improvement strategies. If you participate in the program, you’ll be able to successfully participate in MIPS or learn how to successfully move toward participating in APMs and Advanced APMs.

You have to enroll with a Practice Transformation Network (PTN) to get this help. A PTN is a peer-based learning network that will coach, mentor, and help you develop core competencies specific to practice improvement. Please understand you’ll have to commit time and data to the PTN.
