Community Care Coordination Learning Network (CCCLN)

The CCCLN originated with its champions – Drs. Mark and Sarah Redding – and grew to a network consisting of 17 hub directors, representing 16 distinct community hubs in 10 states. As the network evolved, members engaged in community-based participatory research activities and developed work products such as a guide that provides a step-by-step process to build and sustain an infrastructure to support the delivery of community care coordination services. In September 2011, the CCCLN transitioned from an AHRQ Health Care Innovations Exchange-sponsored learning network to the National Center on Community Care Coordination in the Rockville Institute for the Advancement of Social Science Research.
