Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital in Valencia has launched its own clinically integrated network, or CIN, a collection of physicians and clinics that coordinate patient care with the objective of improving customer satisfaction and lowering costs.
The Henry Mayo Care Network will be comprised of physician and clinic partners across a range of specialties, according to its website. Participating physicians will share information about patients with other providers within the network but will be able to operate their own private practices according to their established business models.
In addition, the network will work with insurance companies to negotiate value-based payment contracts on behalf of its members, the website said.
Henry Mayo Care Network is led by a board of 12 Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital physicians and four hospital representatives.
