MHN stands for Medical Home Network

MHN ACO, LLC evolved from provider-led initiatives managed and supported by Medical Home Network (MHN) an Illinois not-for-profit organization. MHN’s model is built upon the patient-centered medical home, a primary care physician and care team charged with coordinating and managing a patient’s care. MHN was founded to improve the health and quality of care for Medicaid patients in Chicago’s south and southwest neighborhoods.

  • MHN ACO: Who We Are 1
  • MHN ACO: Who We Are 2

We bring together different providers to create one collaborative partnership committed to improving healthcare.

Who We Are

MHN ACO is a unique collaboration of disparate health care entities. Our 12 provider members came together in 2014 to improve health care delivery in the safety net, enhance quality of care, and reduce medical costs.

How We Work

When it comes to building partnerships, we have a strong track record of fostering collaboration. MHN’s first partnerships began with the inception of Medical Home Network five years ago. Since that time, we have been on the forefront of building successful regional partnerships. Provider and practice engagement along with shared decision-making defines our culture and helps drive results.

Our patient-centered approach and innovative technology allow practice-level care teams to proactively manage patients’ care.

MHN Model of Care

We are supporting practice transformation by using a team-based model of care that emphasizes care management at the practice level.

  • 80,000+ CountyCare Members

    receiving MHN ACO practice-level care management

  • 400 Physicians & 1200 Specialists

    across MHN ACO’s 9 FQHCs and 3 hospital systems

  • 71.4% HRA Completion Rate

    Health Risk Assessments are the cornerstone of care management

  • 12.9% Reduction in ER Visits

  • 35% Reduction in Readmission Rates

  • 120 Practice-level Care Managers

Better Healthcare, Better Outcomes

We are providing our patients with better care through the use of coordinated care management at the practice level. Our innovative technology delivers real time alerts and historical data so we can make decisions about patient care when and where they will have the greatest impact.

Our team-based, patient-centered model of care is working – and delivering positive results. ER visits and readmission rates are down while the number of County Care members, physicians and practice-level care managers in our network are growing. But most important, our patients are more involved in their own treatment and have access to higher quality, better care. This is the best outcome of all.
