Maine Chronic Illness Collaborative

Using a patient-centered model of care, community health centers focus on how providers deliver care, patients understand and participate in managing their own care, and communities learn to strengthen the provider-patient partnership. The Maine Chronic Illness Collaborative (MCIC) is a state-based collaborative authorized by the federal government and focused on the needs specific to Maine residents and health centers. All Maine health centers have incorporated patient-centered care within their practices and as a result Maine Community Health Centers have been recognized both at the state and national level for the quality of care offered to patients living with chronic conditions.
