Equity and Practice
Transformation Program

The Learning Center will serve as the Program Office for the DHCS’ Equity and Practice Transformation (EPT) program.  EPT is a five year, $700 million primary care practice transformation program. It aims to advance health equity and address COVID-19-driven care disparities, enhancing the health and wellness of Medi-Cal enrollees. The initial cohort of 207 practices has been selected and DHCS is actively planning for an additional cohort.

As the EPT Program Office, the Learning Center will co-design and catalyze care transformation with participating practices. This includes technical assistance to optimize practices’ population health management capabilities and enable adoption of evidence-based models that can improve health outcomes and reduce health disparities.
