How HCCI Supports the Cohort


  • HCCI has championed home-based primary care (HBPC), otherwise known as the “modern-day house call,” for years, and we continue to look for others to join the movement.
  • As a nationally recognized non-profit organization based in Schaumburg, Il., we seek to ensure every patient in need has access to quality medical care in the home, or place called “home,” that results in a profound improvement in medical outcomes, patient and family experience, and health care spending.

Illinois House Call Project – Cohort 2 Launch

  • The application process for the second cohort of the Illinois House Call Project is now closed. Selected practices will receive notification soon.
  • The second cohort will include a select group of highly qualified Illinois medical practices, including independent practices, those affiliated with hospital systems, and even specialty groups, along with hospice and palliative care programs looking to add or expand their home-based primary care offerings.
  • Each selected practice will designate up to three “Home Centered Care Champions” (providers and practice professionals) to lead their work.
  • With the addition of this new cohort, the new goal of the ILHCP will be to collectively enroll 6,000 new homebound or home-limited people in their homes from 2022 to 2026.
  • HCCI will provide the Champions with expertise, guidance, and comprehensive resources, including education, consulting, tools, market analysis, marketing/PR training, and the opportunity to receive capacity-building funding ─ so they are well-positioned to lead and champion home-based primary care across the state.

“HCCI’s Illinois House Call Project is a terrific resource for house call providers. It provides valuable networking and course instruction, plus the practice assessment course gave me new ideas to consider in my business operations. I’d recommend that new cohort participants take advantage of as many HCCI offerings as they can. Not only can HCCI help them expand their networks, but the courses they offer can help them enhance their operations.” Dr. April Odom, APRN, Family Nurse Practitioner, CEO of Physicals Plus, Illinois House Call Project Champion, Cohort 1
