Memorial Health Network is a clinically integrated network of more than 1,300 participating physicians, each of them united in achieving the broad objective of providing high quality healthcare with greater efficiency at less cost. Providing care to more than 117,000 patients, the Memorial Health Network brings together community, employed and hospital-based physicians to improve the delivery of healthcare. The Network pursues this objective with a multi-pronged approach: enabling collaboration between hospital systems and physicians; promoting communication between providers, pharmacists and hospital staff; and streamlining business processes so that patients, payers and providers can realize significant benefits. MHN’s Clinical Integration Program is designed to provide infrastructure and support directly to our physician members as well as facilitate a value-based incentive system to help drive outstanding outcomes.
Memorial Health Network’s mission is to promote a culture of collaboration and effective patient management across the entire continuum of care to produce exceptional clinical outcomes, reduce costs and consistently achieve the highest level of patient and family satisfaction while enjoying a distinction for value within the community and across the region.
The Network is governed by a Board of Directors and its three reporting committees. To strengthen its culture of physician leadership, MHN’s Board is comprised of eighteen members – eleven of whom are practicing physicians and seven of whom are Memorial employees. The Quality & IT Committee, Finance & Contracting Committee and Credentialing & Peer Review Committee make the day-to-day clinical and operational decisions for the Network. The Quality & IT Committee is responsible for planning and monitoring the Quality Improvement and Clinical Integration Programs. The Finance & Contracting Committee is responsible for network contracting and financial planning.
Lastly, the Credentialing & Peer Review Committee establishes credentialing policies and procedures, evaluates provider applications for initial appointment and reappointment, and reviews and monitors provider performance at Peer Review. Seventy-five percent of the members of these committees are physicians, and each committee is chaired by a practicing physician.
