Health Care Homes

Health Care Homes seal

The Health Care Homes (HCH) program is one of the centerpieces of Minnesota's health reform initiative. Through their focus on redesign of care delivery and meaningful engagement of patients in their care, Health Care Homes is transforming care - and lives - for millions of Minnesotans.

The name "Health Care Homes" acknowledges a critical shift that needs to happen in order to truly improve health in Minnesota. This is a shift from a purely medical model of health care to a focus on linking primary care with wellness, prevention, self-management and community services.

The goals of the model are to:

  • Continue building a strong primary care foundation to ensure all Minnesotans have the opportunity to receive team-based, coordinated, patient-centered care.
  • Increase care coordination and collaboration between primary care clinicians and community resources to support whole person care and facilitate the broader goals of improving population health and health equity.
  • Improve the quality, experience, and value of care.
  • Payment

  • Training and updates on payment methodology.
  • Learning Collaborative

  • Opportunity for Health Care Homes and State agencies to exchange information and enhance understanding related to quality improvement and best practices.
  • Rulemaking

  • Health Care Homes Rule Revisions, Process, and Advisory Committee
