All practices can benefit from the dialogue created to help them understand how the systems and processes they have put in place can bring value to payers, ACO’s, narrow networks, referral networks, and of course, patients and families.
There are two types of stories – Practice Stories and Exemplar Practice Stories. Not all practices will have all of the elements identified to meet the exemplar criteria below. For those practices, we encourage completion of their Practice Story with the data available and to strengthen their story over time. More in-depth development guidance is included in the Checklist under Resources.
Exemplar practices are in Phase 4, Phase 5, have completed Phase 5 or have completed 85% of their total possible Practice Assessment (PAT) score. In addition, they must have demonstrated improvement in clinical outcomes, have pre & post-data demonstrating reductions in cost and utilization, and have implemented 2 out of the 6 patient and family engagement metrics. With the practice’s permission, exemplar practices will be recognized and submitted to the national TCPi program’s exemplar practice registry.

|Faculty Review||NA||For practices that meet our exemplary practice definition AND also have complete content, the faculty will evaluate against criteria for the Exemplar Registry.|
|Revisions||This story belongs to the practice and should be revised by the practice as evidence-based strengths are developed.||This story belongs to the practice and should be revised by the practice as evidence-based strengths are developed.
