Partnership for Community Care (P4CC) is a non-profit organization comprised of: Primary Care Providers, Hospitals/Health Care Systems, County Health Departments and County Departments of Social Services. We are charged with improving the health outcomes and reducing the care costs of the Carolina Access Medicaid and NC Health Choice populations in Guilford, Rockingham and Randolph Counties. We are one of 14 similar networks participating in the statewide Medicaid quality improvement strategy called Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC). In addition to serving NC Health Choice and Carolina Access Medicaid populations, we help uninsured patients in Guilford County access medical care.
North Carolina is attempting to stop the rapid rise of health care costs in the Medicaid population while at the same time aiming to improve the quality of care and health outcomes. In states like North Carolina, the challenge in finding an innovative approach to address the quality and cost problem is much greaterâ€"it has a diffused population, with a significant percentage still living in rural areas; its medical services infrastructure remains dominated by small physician practices and loosely connect health organizations; and managed care penetration is low. To help address these challenges, North Carolina began in 1998 building regional communityâ€"based networks of providers - CCNC - that is statewide and provides the infrastructure to improve health care for all Medicaid beneficiaries. – less–ZoomInfo
