Project Description

Medical Home Network

Medical Home Network (MHN) is an ACO with a proprietary care management playbook and custom-built care management software. MHN has connected all of the hospitals in the Chicago metro area to its care management system so that primary care physicians are notified if their patient shows up in a hospital’s emergency department. The ACO encompasses over 100 healthcare sites, including hospitals and FQHCs, working together to serve CountyCare members.

How the Medical Home Network ACO Uses Purple Binder

Purple Binder coordinated with MHN staff and ACO member organizations to deploy Purple Binder across all ACO sites. Additionally, Purple Binder built a seamless single sign-on (SSO) integration with Medical Home Network’s care management system. Existing resource lists and referral processes were integrated into Purple Binder.

Integration with Care Management to Address the Social Determinants of Health

Medical Home Network case managers are able to standardize the way that patients are referred to community resources. Case managers can easily jump from a member’s care coordination record to the resources that they need in Purple Binder.
