PCMH, CINs, ACOs, MU, PQRS, ICD-10, MACRA… Is the Bowl of Alphabet Soup Getting Harder to Digest? We Can Help.

Health care practices in North Carolina face many challenges. Our quality improvement coaches (QICs) are trained to work with you to transform the way in which care is delivered in your practice. We provide on-site training and assistance on the tools and systems you need to: provide consistently high quality care to all patients all the time; complete today’s work today; and prepare your practice for value-based payment initiatives.


QPP and MIPS: We’re Here to Help You!

The North Carolina Area Health Education Centers (NC AHEC) and Alliant Quality are working together to help small practices in North Carolina understand and successfully participate in the CMS Quality Payment Program (QPP) Merit-based Incentive Program (MIPS). This support for QPP MIPS is available at no cost to you. You may reach us for local, in-state support at 919-445-3508 or QPPSupport@ncahec.net.
