About Us

Northern Piedmont Community Care (NPCC) is the umbrella for two networks: Durham Community Health Network (for Durham county) and Community Care Partners (for Vance, Warren, Person, Franklin and Granville counties). NPCC promotes wellness to strengthen the self-care capacity of its Medicaid members and their families. NPCC is housed within the Duke Population Health Management Office, part of the Duke University Health System.

With an interdisciplinary staff of professional and paraprofessional providers, NPCC has focused its efforts and energies on the development of community-based care/disease management that supports the integration and collaboration of the various patient delivery systems within the community. The staff of NPCC deliver at-risk social work services, service coordination, access support, education and nutrition counseling.

Care management services are provided by DukeWELL, Duke Health's ambulatory care management program, which includes clinical personnel, behavioral health specialists and community health workers.
