CIN - Clinically Integrated Network

Provider Brief     January 2020

Many health care providers are joining with others to form what are known as Clinically Integrated Networks (CINs) to respond to the challenges of health care reform as it shifts from a fee-for-service model to a value-based reimbursement model.

A CIN is a legal structure that facilitates sanctioned collaboration among health care providers to share resources and data, and maintain certain measures in quality, value and efficiency. This structure allows providers to stay competitive by promoting a higher level of coordinated care at a lower cost. This in turn, helps them negotiate optimal reimbursement rates and create lower cost, higher-quality of care under one unified network destination.

Premier Health Group has established a CIN – known as Premier Health Group Select. Our Physician Relationship Managers (PRMs) have started contacting with providers to request their participation in Premier Health Group Select since it offers the opportunity to earn additional reimbursements. We are excited to partner with providers as we work together to achieve the shared goal of delivering outstanding, high-value care to the patients we serve.

Who Are the CIN’s Stakeholders?

To meet the CIN’s goals, three sets of stakeholders align:

  • Physician partners including high quality, efficient providers across the care continuum. The CIN will include academic, employed, and independent physician
  • Premier Health Group who seeks to achieve better patient quality outcomes and experience through differentiated care delivery
  • Payers who are committed to market share growth and CIN promotion, with contracts co-created with the CIN to be mutually beneficial
