Applications for Cardiovascular Prevention Enhancement Program due Feb. 28

The Wisconsin Initiative to Promote Healthy Lifestyles (WIPHL) and Transform Wisconsin have issued a call for applications for their CDC-funded Cardiovascular Prevention Enhancement Program (CPEP). CPEP aims to help Wisconsin clinics improve outcomes for their patients with type 2 diabetes, hypertension or lipid disorders.

Transform Wisconsin and WIPHL will select up to six Wisconsin clinics to participate. Ideally, at least two clinics will be located in rural counties. The application deadline is February 28, 2014.

WIPHL and Transform Wisconsin cite the following as possible advantages of participation in the program:

  • Satisfy dozens of NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home recognition criteria.
  • Improve performance on several WCHQ and CMS Accountable Care Organization (ACO) quality measures.
  • Generate shared savings for ACOs.
  • Have a staff member trained in motivational interviewing.
  • Generate additional fee-for-service revenue.
  • Gain an additional edge in competing for contracts.
  • Take an important step toward delivering team-administered, value-based health care.
  • Help prevent cardiovascular disease among patients with important risk factors.
