Health Happens Locally – Welcome To NCCARE360 By Anne Thomas

By June 6, 2019 August 29th, 2019 No Comments

Together, we are changing the trajectory of health for all North Carolinians.

There is growing recognition that better coordination and investment in the non-medical drivers of health, like access to healthy food, safe and affordable housing and well-paying jobs, can improve health and decrease health care costs. Through NCCARE360’s groundbreaking, statewide coordinated network, health care and human services organizations are now united through a shared technology platform. NCCARE360 is a coordinated, community-oriented, person-centered approach for delivering care in North Carolina, and sets an example for the entire nation. In fact, this transformation is already underway in our state and rapidly expanding to support every person in North Carolina.

We have launched in 12 counties, with 9 counties in the implementation process. Over 1000 organizations have engaged in the socialization process and we look forward to working closely together.

NCCARE360 provides the infrastructure to connect all North Carolinians to community resources and has the potential to touch the lives and improve the health of all North Carolinians, including the commercially insured, Medicare, Medicaid, uninsured, military and veteran populations. NCCARE360 helps build a system of health that is focused on the person and helps them access the services and resources they need to be healthy. Together we’ve invested in both existing and new infrastructure to enable different types of organizations to connect people to health and social services in a way that makes the system more efficient. This provides visibility and accountability to help bridge the gap between health and social care.

Health happens locally, and NCCARE360 supports that important vision.

For more than 35 years, the Foundation for Health Leadership & Innovation has been developing programs and partnerships to improve health, and we are focused on addressing the needs of the whole-person through a whole community approach. We believe systems of care belong to and are shaped by the communities they serve. NCCARE360 will showcase the power of collaboration in our state as we work to ensure every partner delivering services in North Carolina is connected, knitting together our health care system and communities. Your support is instrumental in this process and we look forward to working together now and in the future!

Warmly,
Anne Thomas
President/CEO, Foundation for Health Leadership & Innovation
