A health center controlled network including federally qualified health centers and look-alikes that agree to work with CVN and each other to jointly address operational and clinical challenges present in their efforts to leverage Health Information Technology (Health IT) to advance their participation in value-based care.

Healthy Communities Collaborative Network

HRSA grant-funded health center controlled network supporting Health IT

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded Collaborative Ventures Network (CVN) a second three-year grant for its Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCN) Program.  Beginning August 1, 2019, this HRSA funding will enable CVN to continue providing needed training and technical assistance to 26 participating health centers (PHCs) across Arizona and Nevada participating in its Healthy Communities Collaborative Network so that, both individually and together, we can better leverage Health IT to increase participation in value-based care.  HRSA believes Health IT can be instrumental to achieving value-based care transformation, which provides benefits including greater patient empowerment, transparency between patients and providers, and increased value and quality. In order to move towards value-based care delivery, we must advance data sharing and analytics capacity and develop population health management tools.

CVN is actively engaged in supporting each PHC with training and technical assistance that will address their particular needs related to each of HRSA’s Project Goals and Objectives for the HCCN Project to improve the patient and provider experience, advance interoperability, and improve data use.

Goal A: Improve the Patient and Provider Experience

  • Objective A1: Use Health IT to facilitate patients’ access to their person health information
  • Objective A2: Improve patient engagement with health care teams by advancing health IT and training
  • Objective A3: Improve health IT usability to minimize provider burden

Goal B: Advance Interoperability

  • Objective B1: Complete a security risk analysis and have a breach mitigation and response plan
  • Objective B2: Meet national standards for data exchange and share information securely with other key providers and health systems
  • Objective B3: Consolidate clinical and non-clinical data from across the health care continuum to optimize care coordination and workflows

Goal C: Use Data to Enhance Value

  • Objective C1: Improve capacity for data standardization, management, and analysis to support value-based care activities
  • Objective C2: Use both aggregate and patient-level data on social risk factors to support coordinated, effective interventions
  • Objective C3: Use Health IT to advance telehealth for health care delivery, education, and health information services

Why Join – Healthy Communities Collaborative Network
