CVN

CHC Collaborative Ventures dba Collaborative Ventures Network (CVN) was established in 1997 as a nonprofit organization to promote integration of services through collaboration in order to increase access to care and improve quality of care for Arizonans while reducing operating costs.  Its mission is “to foster collaborative business activities which enhance Community Health Center’s individual abilities to meet the needs of Arizona’s uninsured, underinsured and underserved.”

HRSA awarded CVN a three-year grant to sponsor a Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) which will support meaningful use of ONC-certified electronic health records, adoption of technology-enabled quality improvement strategies, and engagement in health information exchange to strengthen the quality of care and improve patient health outcomes. CVN is also developing a statewide Clinical Integration Network (CIN) program that supports both value-based care and provider group contracting with healthcare payors.  CVN-member health centers already deliver quality care for all patients served in our primary care network – – – clinically integrating physical, behavioral and oral health not only creates a patient-centered health home for individuals and families at each primary care site but also allows each health center to become the anchor for patient case management and care coordination across the broader clinical-social service community, thereby increasing the value of care.

CVN is currently comprised of 17 members, including Health Center Program grantees, look-alikes, and Rural Hospitals.  A Member Application may be requested from John McDonald, CVN President & CEO, at johnm@aachc.org, or Ginny Roberts, SrVP & COO, at ginnyr@aachc.org.
