The first statewide coordinated care online network that connects healthcare and human services partners together in one platform began running in Currituck County last December and will be up and running in Dare County this May.
When a person visits the hospital emergency room, for instance, staff there can refer a patient to other services like Interfaith Community Outreach, the Outer Banks Relief Foundation or a local food pantry, though NCCARE360. And all the stakeholders can manage that person’s care together.
The NCCARE360 online platform is the result of a public-private partnership between the NC Department of Health and Human Services and the Foundation for Health Leadership & Innovation. It takes the technology and content of United Way of NC, NC 2-1-1, Expound Decision Systems, and Unite Us and makes an online home where referrals and case management are easier and more efficient.
Abi Bussone, Community Engagement Manager at NCCare360, will be educating the community about this new tool on Friday March 6 at 9:45 am at a meeting of the Community Services Collaborative. The meeting takes place at the Outer Banks Association of Realtors office and is open to the public.
NCCARE360 is an online platform that ensures accountability for services delivered, provides a “no wrong door” approach, closes the loop on every referral made, and reports outcomes of that connection. NCCARE360 will be available in all 100 counties by the end of 2020, statewide in North Carolina.
About the Community Services Collaborative
The Collaborative is an informal group of representatives from local human services agencies and community benefit groups who meet quarterly to stay informed about and support one another’s work.
