Become a Price Transparency Pioneer Today with NYACP's Early Adopter Incentive Program

Would you like to lead the way?  As part of the Helping Physicians Empower Patients initiative, NYACP has an opportunity for members interested in becoming transparency pioneers to apply for an Early Adoption Incentive Program Grant. Practices who agree to participate will receive:

  • No-cost practice consultations and assessment
  • Tools, learning resources and best practice guidance
  • Skill building and training support
  • Flexible learning/Peer Discussions
  • Awards between $3,000 and $4,500 per practice

This initiative aims to spread awareness and use of currently available transparency tools. We will provide the skills to facilitate constructive quality and cost conversations with your patients. The overall goal is to help you empower your patients to make informed decisions to improve outcomes. Early adopters are a critical piece in providing key insights and measuring progress. The requirements are simple. We expect participating practices to:

  • Assign a project lead
  • Be available for a visit with our Project Coordinator at your convenience
  • Participate in initial, interim and final Practice Assessments
  • Participate in training on tool use and best practices
  • Engage in monthly check-in communication
  • Collect and provide data as needed
  • Be willing to participate in additional learning opportunities
  • Be an Ambassador and share success stories, key insights and best practices 

We will kick off the year-long program this summer and spots are limited!  To be considered for an Early Adopter Incentive Program Mini Grant Award, please submit an application for each practice location by June 30, 2018. 

To learn more about the Helping Physicians to Empower Patients Initiative please visit the Empowering Patients Resources page where you will find available transparency tools and resources to help facilitate the conversation. 

Even if you do not want to become an early adopter, please complete our Survey on the Availability of Quality and Cost Information.  Thank you to all of our members who have responded with valuable information!
