Establishing a Coalition to Pursue Accountable Care in the Safety Net: A Case Study of the FQHC Urban Health Network

In the recent study, Establishing a Coalition to Pursue Accountable Care in the Safety Net: A Case Study of the FQHC Urban Health Network, Schoenherr, et al. examined Minnesota’s Federally Qualified Health Center Urban Health Network (FUHN). The advent of its ACO contract and coalition were of particular interest to better understand the context of movement from competition to collaboration in an era of scarce resources across vast areas with significant geographic variation. The researchers found that FUHN participants chose this as an opportunity to show that the FQHC model can provide high-quality, low-cost care through a series of community health hubs.
