Community Care of North Carolina wins the inaugural Hearst Health Prize, a $100,000 award given by Hearst Health and the Jefferson College of Population Health in recognition of outstanding achievement in managing or improving health. CCNC’s care management program serves 2,600 Medicaid recipients each month and focuses on individuals with chronic conditions at risk for hospitalization or readmission. CCNC President and CEO L. Allen Dobson Jr., MD attributes the program’s success to the use of “robust health analytics along with a statewide infrastructure and a network of physicians and hospitals has allowed us to manage the toughest patients well. Our drive to improve the health of North Carolinians has been grounded in collaboration and the use of data that have shown us how to improve outcomes and to reduce costs.”
