MHN ACO:Virtually Integrated, Community Based Healthcare
Chicago’s Safety Net. Established in 2014, the Chicago-based MHN ACO, LLC is a provider-owned collaborative comprised of 9 Federally Qualified Health Centers and 3 Hospital Systems and their Physician Practices operating in a unique egalitarian structure where each provider has an equal voice. Under this leadership and in partnership with local not-for-profit Medical Home Network, MHN ACO has implemented a community-based, practice-level model of care.
MHN’s web-based Care Coordination Exchange—MHNConnect—is the anchoring technology platform for the MHN ACO, and also provides connectivity more broadly to the entire CountyCare Health Plan, serving 180,000 Medicaid members. MHNConnect virtually integrates 21 disparate hospitals with more than 155 primary care medical homes; combining historical claims and Rx data, real-time activity alerts, and patient-reported data in an intuitive interface that enables proactive, practice-level care management.
This 2015 Roundtable Session Presentation discussed how to understand, how the MHNConnect platform enables the MHN ACO to achieve its goals of implementing structured, patient-centered care management that improves care, lowers costs, and reduces readmissions.
