Northwest Community Care Network (NCCN) began in 1998 with Surry as the original pilot county. NCCN began to add additional counties in December 2001 and has grown to cover Carolina Access recipients in the counties of Davidson, Davie, Forsyth, Stokes, Surry, Wilkes, and Yadkin. The program as developed in these counties serves both rural and urban settings. In order to provide the necessary managed care services to these recipients the network has affiliated with the health departments, hospitals, and social service departments in each county.
The NCCN Mission Statement reads "We are an organized community network of healthcare providers and care managers, which partners with other community resources to improve the health and well-being of our Medicaid patients in an appropriate and cost-effective manner.”
Partnership for Community Care (P4CC) is responsible for the support of Medicaid patients in Guilford, Rockingham and Randolph counties. We presently support 70% of all Carolina Access patients in all three counties. Our purpose is to identify and minimize barriers to healthcare by helping primary care providers in our network to better utilize evidence-based disease state management guidelines. We also provide Care Management services to patients to reinforce what their provider's treatment plan is and to better manage their chronic conditions. These services are provided by medical and behavioral health social workers, nurses, pharmacists and a nutritionist. We also provide additional support to providers of children through our four Health Check Coordinators and our Early Intervention Specialist. Currently we have approximately 96,000 enrollees in our network.
