What is HCCN?

Maine Primary Care Association operates a Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN), referred to as the Community Health Center Network of Maine (CHCNet), which launched in 2005. There are currently 15 participating health centers that work collaboratively toward their mission “to strengthen and improve population health outcomes by leveraging health information technologies and building strong systems of care.”

MPCA is in the midst of another 3-year grant period for HCCN and is continuing with the goal of helping participating Health Centers make substantial progress in their readiness for value-based care models, which also demands well-functioning HIT and data systems.
