Primary Care Training and Enhancement Program

This announcement solicits applications for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 Primary Care Training and Enhancement (PCTE) program.  Program Purpose The overarching purpose of the PCTE program is to strengthen the primary care workforce by supporting enhanced training for future primary care clinicians,

teachers, and researchers.  Program Requirements In FY 2016, applicants for the PCTE program must focus on training for transforming healthcare systems, particularly enhancing the clinical training experience of trainees.  Some of the characteristics identified by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that are closely associated with transformed healthcare delivery systems include:
•   Providers across the care continuum participate in integrated or virtually integrated delivery models, •   Care is coordinated across all providers and settings, •   There is a high level of patient engagement and quantifiable results on patient experience, •   Providers leverage the use of health information technology to improve quality, •   Providers perform at the top of their license and board certification, •   Population health measures are integrated into the delivery system, and •   Data is used to drive health system processes.[1] In addition, projects that address the social determinants of health while addressing health care delivery transformation are encouraged.
