This document is a part of a compilation that highlights health center-focused accountable care platforms. The purpose of this series is to provide examples of best practices and lessons learned that can be applied in a variety of situations. Best Practices paper #4 features Carolina Medical Home Network and their journey to achieving accountable care.
Carolina Medical Home Network (CMHN) is a health center-led accountable care organization (ACO) made up of six North Carolina health centers.
