Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC) is a state-created program that connects Medicaid beneficiaries with a medical home. Consisting of 14 local health care networks and 3,200 primary care providers, CCNC has been shown to improve clinical care quality and produce considerable cost savings. Officials from 32 states and several national organizations have now requested guidance from North Carolina in replicating the program's success. This grant will enable the CCNC team to create practical, online resources to assist state officials, health plan representatives, provider organizations, and physicians outside of North Carolina to adopt or adapt the model. In addition, it will enable the provision of follow-up technical assistance to senior state officials. The Milbank Memorial Fund will provide cofunding.
