  •  AccessCare AccessCare serves 23 North Carolina counties.

    AccessCare is comprised of primary care physicians committed to providing the highest quality medical care for the Medicaid, Medicare, and uninsured populations of North Carolina.  Like the other CCNC networks, AccessCare collaborates with the primary care provider, Department of Social Services, Mental Health, and other community agencies to ensure prevention, treatment and continuity of care. 

    Established in July 1998 as a member-owned, not-for-profit organization of 23 practices, AccessCare has grown to a statewide network of over 300 primary care practices with 1,000 providers caring for over 260,000 Medicaid enrollees as of June 2013.

    While most CCNC networks serve a contiguous, multi-county region, AccessCare serves patients in 23 counties spread across North Carolina:  Alamance, Alexander, Alleghany, Ashe, Avery, Burke, Caldwell, Caswell, Catawba, Chatham, Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Haywood, Iredell, Jackson, Macon, Orange, Robeson, Sampson, Swain, Watauga and Wayne.  AccessCare also manages five specific care locations -- or "sites" -- in Eastern and Central North Carolina. (See network entry below.)

    The numbers for our network as of June 2013:
    Counties Covered: 23
    Primary Care practices: 280 
    Hospitals: 29
    Care Managers: 89.8

  •  AccessCare Network Sites AccessCare manages five sites.

    While most CCNC networks serve a contiguous, multi-county region, five specific locations -- or "sites" -- are managed by AccessCare, a CCNC network with its main office in Morrisville, NC.  Two of these sites are in Eastern North Carolina. These sites are represented by gray circles on the map at the top of this page.

     
  •  Community Care of Western North Carolina Serving Buncombe, Henderson, Madison, McDowell, Mitchell, Polk, Transylvania, and Yancey Counties.

    Our mission statement clearly defines our focus. We are “a catalyst for patient-centered, provider-led, community-oriented quality healthcare in WNC.” Since its founding in 1998, CCWNC has been an innovator in providing superior care management services to the Medicaid population ages birth through the end of life as a local 501(c)(3) organization. Team members collaborate with primary care providers, hospitals, county health departments, behavioral Health Managed Care Organizations and other community agencies to ensure improved quality, cost and continuity of care.

    Over the years, CCWNC has expanded its services to include additional initiatives such as Palliative Care, Long Term Care, the Foster Care Initiative, and HealthNet, which serves uninsured, low-income adults.

    Currently, CCWNC is expanding its regional model by opening satellite offices in McDowell, Mitchell and Yancey Counties. We employ part-time Assistant Medical Directors and a regional Program Manager to engage community partners and primary care providers to achieve the following goals:

    - Make it local—identifying physician leadership and dedicated staff members to hear and respond to the needs of the local communities/patients/providers/practices

    - Enhance our partnerships and strengthen community collaborations

    - Improve provider satisfaction and engagement with the network

    - Assist with resources to help local communities adapt to the ever-changing landscape of healthcare and be innovative in their solutions to issues

    Transylvania County is one of seven counties in North Carolina participating in the federal demonstration project Multi-payer Advanced Primary Care Practice Project or (MAPCP). A CCNC initiative, CCWNC is working in collaboration with Medicare, the Division of Medical Assistance (DMA), Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC), and the North Carolina State Health Plan for Teachers and State Employees (SHP) to improve the health of rural residents by supporting and promoting a patient-centered medical home model (PCMH).

    Most recently in 2013, CCWNC hired two embedded care managers to launch CCNC’s latest initiative, the Child Health Accountable Care Collaborative (CHACC)—a 3-year program to improve the quality and cost-effectiveness of care associated with caring for children with complex, chronic illnesses who have been in a neonatal intensive care or pediatric intensive care unit and are at risk for readmission because of their fragile and complex medical state, technology dependence, and the potential for technology malfunction.

    CCWNC also remains focused on its core initiatives including Quality Improvement, Behavioral Health Integration and Clinical Pharmacy. The Quality Improvement program impacts quality of care by improving the efficiency and effectiveness of current care processes. It also impacts CCNC statewide goals of decreasing preventable hospital admissions and inappropriate ED visits. The Behavioral Health initiative decreases readmissions in community psychiatric inpatient settings. Simultaneously, it increases the percentage of co-located behavioral health providers in practices. Our Clinical Pharmacists serve as a resource for Medicaid pharmacy policy and drug information. They also act as a liaison between providers and community pharmacies.

    CCWNC employs a diverse group of professionals, each bringing a unique skill set to the organization. We are governed by our core values—Accountability, Integrity, Innovation and Collaboration. Our vision: “Healthy Individuals. Healthy Communities.”
