About Us

Medical Home Network (MHN) is a not-for-profit collaborative that has fundamentally changed how care is delivered. Our proven model of care unites provider communities and diverse healthcare entities around a common goal: to redesign healthcare delivery and transform the way care is managed at the practice level.

It starts with providers and patients working together to improve health. Care teams drive engagement by developing relationships with patients that extend beyond the four walls of the primary care practice. We provide the tools and processes to help care teams engage patients and help them become an accountable member of the team. Research shows that patients who are involved in making their healthcare decisions tend to be healthier and have better outcomes. 

By connecting providers and delivering real-time information, we enable coordinated care management, improve transitions of care, and promote timely follow-up. But the most important change is that patients receive better care where and when they need it.

MHN: What we do

  • Power delivery system redesign and practice transformation.
  • Foster collaboration across disparate healthcare providers.
  • Enable a decentralized model of care, with care teams employed at the primary care practice.
  • Create a structured approach to care management with supporting tools, processes, and staffing.
  • Promote whole-person care by managing medical, behavioral and social determinants of health.

Leading the way

"Improving the health of the communities we serve is at the heart of everything we do. Using this as our guide, MHN is creating innovative partnerships that focus on treating the whole person and enhance collaboration and integration across vital parts of the healthcare system."

Cheryl Lulias, President & Executive Director
