The Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative (CPCI) is a pilot program sponsored by CMS intended to improve medical care in primary care offices by providing care managers/care coordinators to assist in the management of medically complex patients and close existing care gaps. Currently about ½ of our TCHMA offices are actively participating, but we are hopeful that all practices will be accepted in the next phase starting in January 2017.
