Key Findings:

  • CPC+ continued to provide practices with significant supports in the second program year (2018), including enhanced and alternative payments, data feedback, individualized and group learning supports, and health IT vendor support.
  • CPC+ practices continued to change care delivery.
  • As in the first year of CPC+, practices thought their work was making a difference, but found aspects challenging.
  • Primary care transformation takes time to implement.

The Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) Model: Findings at a Glance provides a brief overview of the independent evaluation’s findings about the first two years of CPC+ for the 2,905 practices in regions that began CPC+ in 2017. A full report on the evaluation of CPC+’s second year is found in the Independent Evaluation of Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+): Second Annual Report, which describes (1) engagement in CPC+ by payer partners and health IT vendors and participation by practices; (2) the supports practices received; (3) how practices implemented CPC+ and changed the way they delivered health care; and (4) the early impacts of CPC+ on cost, service use, limited claims-based quality-of-care outcomes, and patient experience for attributed Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries. Additional detailed information can be found in the Second Annual Report: Supplemental Volume and the Second Annual Report: Appendices to the Supplemental Volume.
