What is a CIN?

In today’s evolving health care landscape, there is increasing emphasis on providers working more closely together to improve patient outcomes. More providers are joining Clinically Integrated Networks (CIN), which are collections of health care providers such as hospitals, physician groups and others that collaborate to improve the quality of care and lower costs. A CIN develops, negotiates, enters, and administers contracts with employers, payers and other parties to deliver health care services to their employees or other covered individuals, and the services are delivered by providers in the CIN.

The Northeast Georgia Health System CIN is made up of HP2 members and a variety of other community providers.
