Health Center Controlled Networks

Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCNs) provide valuable opportunities for health centers to optimize limited resources. Many health centers have found that partnering with a HCCN has provided substantial value to their operations in terms of quality and overall organizational performance. Partnering with an HCCN can also substantially decrease a health center’s HIT investment.

Through funding made available by the Health Resources & Services Administration, NACHC had developed a Network Resource Guide to provide information about existing health center networks and present an overview of the work currently being conducted by networks in the field. The Guide was intended for use by provider organizations such as health centers and clinics, Primary Care Associations (PCAs), and HCCNs, as well as other individuals or organizations seeking greater understanding of health center network capacities.

NEW: A new Network Resource Guide website to replace the PDF versions of the Guide is now available. This website houses information on health center networks and allows for networks to maintain their own data in real time. As a result, visitors to the website are able to view up-to-date information at the click of a button. and search, filter and download data. NACHC will further develop this website to update data fields, provide analytic and graphing options, and refine the layout and content.

NOTE: This website replaces all prior versions of the Guide. If you are a HCCN and would like to update or add your information to the website, contact us at
