How HCCI Supports the Cohort

Background

  • 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

  • HCCI is offering Illinois practices a period to apply to the second cohort of the Illinois House Call Project.
  • The second cohort will include a select group of highly qualified Illinois medical practices, including independent entities, 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.
