Enjoy your Tuesday AND your

NCMS Morning Rounds.

NCCARE360 Issues First Quarterly Report

The first quarterly report for the state’s coordinated care network, NCCARE360, has been published. This document offers you an overview of the development and rollout of this statewide network, which will serve as the core infrastructure as the state moves toward whole person health and health system transformation.

NCCARE360 provides users with public access to local health and social resources, access to dedicated care navigators, the ability to send and receive secure electronic referrals, communicate in real-time, securely share client information and track outcomes. The report highlights the first referral success, which occurred in March in Guilford County.

Learn more about NCCARE360 and read the quarterly report. The state also is interested in your feedback. Email them at

Kudos to WakeMed and UNC Healthcare!

The online employer rating service Kununu, which compiles and posts anonymous reviews from employees and job applicants at companies nationwide to help job seekers learn about potential employers, recently offered its Top 10 employers in the health care industry and guess who made that list? WakeMed and UNC Healthcare both made the top 10 along with big national names like Massachusetts General Hospital and the Mayo Clinic.

WakeMed was ranked seven with a 90 percent recommendation rate. Employee comments included: “the management really looks out for their employees”, “the people are so nice and the benefits are amazing” and “friendly folks with the patient and family are at the heart of what we do.”

UNC Healthcare came in at number 10 with comments noting that the organization offers “competitive pay and plenty of opportunities to move up the career ladder” combined with “a laid back environment in the clinics.”

Congratulations to two NCMS super groups!
