A Primary Care Network (PCN) is a clinical network of providers in a geographic area where patients receive expanded, culturally safe, comprehensive care and improved access to primary care. Requiring a strong foundation of Patient Medical Homes, PCNs are designed to wrap services around patients and create a new system for introducing more integrated, team-based care into primary care in the community.
