The Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network (GLPTN) is a three-state quality improvement effort funded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Service in the US Department of Health and Human Services. The goal of the project is to transform the practices of clinical providers across the Midwest into learning practices of delivering improved care at a lower cost. UPHCS has been selected by Altarum to serve the U.P. region by providing direct technical assistance for quality improvement necessary to facilitate community-wide success. Other Partners include the Michigan Center for Rural Health, McLaren Health Care, Wayne State University and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. Together, they will improve the quality of care for more than 3 million Michigan residents.
