RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA – NCCARE360, the nation’s first statewide coordinated care network connecting individuals to local services and resources, announced today that NCServes, North Carolina’s technology network of public, private and non-profit organizations serving military families, is merging its network of resources with NCCARE360’s this summer.
“Unifying the technology and resources of NCCARE360 and NCServes brings an improved experience for North Carolina’s military community,” said Jeff Smith, Military and Veterans Program Liaison, North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. “By joining forces, we will increase the number of resources available to our active-duty service members, veterans and their families.”
Launched in 2015, NCServes is the nation’s first statewide coordinated network of public, private, and non-profit organizations working together to connect military service members, veterans, and military families with providers and resources for which they are eligible. All NCServes network partners will now have access to additional NCCARE360 features and data to help them better serve military families. Implementation is currently underway, and the combined network launch is expected in mid-July of this year.
“Joining these two robust resource platforms will not only provide improved access to services and resources for our state’s military families,” said Kelly Calabria, President and CEO of FHLI. “But the partnership builds on NCCARE360’s mission to better address the health needs of all North Carolinians.”
NCCARE360 is the first statewide network that unites health care and human services organizations with a shared technology that enables a coordinated, community-oriented, person-centered approach for delivering care in North Carolina. NCCARE360 is the result of a strong public-private partnership between the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) and the Foundation for Health Leadership & Innovation (FHLI). The NCCARE360 implementation team includes United Way of NC, NC 2-1-1, Expound Decision Systems, and Unite Us.
