Earlier this year, Health Access Network joined a Maine-based Accountable Care Organization (ACO), Community Care Partnership of Maine (CCPM), which is group of health care organizations dedicated to improving the collective health of communities across the State through the coordination of sustainable, innovative, and effective patient-centered care.
CCPM features members from across the state, including 11 community health centers and three community hospitals, and is committed to collaboration, resource sharing, and the implementation of best practices for improving the patient and care team experience, achieving high-quality clinical outcomes, and managing costs.
“Health Access Network is delighted to join the CCPM team. We believe CCPM has developed a great model that uniquely positions many health care entities together, capitalizing on quality health care in a cost effective and efficient manner. By joining this effort, Health Access Network will be able to grow not only within the community we serve, but also within the health care environment,” said Nicole Morrison, RN, Chief Executive Officer.
CCPM’s member organizations collectively serve over 180,000 patients. CCPM is required to meet certain quality and performance metrics in the delivery of care for those patients, including in areas of patient/caregiver experience, care coordination and patient safety, preventive health, and treatment of at-risk populations with chronic disease.
In response to Health Access Network joining the ACO, CCPM Chief Executive Officer Mary Prybylo, RN, MSN, FACHE, noted “Community Health Centers are critical deliverers of health care in our communities– they truly are the neighborhood doctor’s office for so many Maine people.” “Health centers historically have focused on the social determinants of health and improving population health, so it is a natural fit for Health Access Network to join our efforts improve health outcomes for the communities we serve through meaningful collaboration and shared accountability for the health of our patients.”
