Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) — Technology Innovations

The Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) is a network of health centers working together as members in the HCCN. Montana’s 15 network members are made up of the 14 community health centers and one look-alike health center.

The Montana HCCN was founded on the principles of the Health Center Controlled Network model defined under Section 330(e)(1)(c) of the Public Health Service Act. The members work together to improve access to care, enhance quality of care and achieve cost efficiencies. The MT HCCN provides training and technical assistance to support its members to leverage health IT to participate in value-based payment by enhancing the patient and provider experience, advancing interoperability, and using data to enhance value.

Learn more about HCCN at the Health Resources & Services Administration website.

The Uniform Data System (UDS) report is due February 15th, 2022.

Failure to submit a complete and accurate UDS report by the deadline will result in a program condition being placed on the health center’s grant. Chapter 18 Program Monitoring and Data Reporting Systems in the Compliance Manual describes the full requirement. Resources for reporting UDS can be found below or on the HRSA website.
