FEDERALLY QUALIFIED HEALTH CENTER URBAN HEALTH NETWORK

THE NATION'S FIRST VIRTUAL FQHC LED MEDICAID ACO

The Federally Qualified Health Center Urban Health Network (FUHN) is an organization of ten Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) who have worked together to form a HCCN (HealthCare Controlled Network) working in partnership with Minnesota’s Department of Human Services on Medicaid health care reform efforts. These efforts include FUHN’s participation in an Integrated Health Partnership Accountable Care Organization demonstration project with the State of Minnesota.  Through this demonstration project FUHN participant FQHCs hope to further enhance the health care provided to their Medical Assistance patients by coupling our primary care efforts with expanded use of technology.  Our demonstration project has improved service access, clinical quality and patient satisfaction/engagement, while reducing overall costs to Minnesota's Medicaid program. 


The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Institute published a study through the Commonwealth Fund that details FUHN's efforts as the nation's first virtual FQHC led Medicaid ACO.

THE FUTURE OF THE IHP

What does the future hold for FUHN and its Minnesota Medicaid IHP?

 

MEDIA CENTER

There’s a reason why Federal Urban Health Network is known throughout the country as an innovator in healthcare reform, and part of it has to do with forming collaborative relationships with each other and the wider community. IHPs have helped Minnesota save more than $150 million and achieve better health outcomes for people enrolled in Medical Assistance and MinnesotaCare.
