Clinically Integrated Health Care Network (CIN)
Helping Our Behavioral Health Providers Remain Competitive
In 2019, members of the Collaborative and leading community behavioral health organizations across Ohio came together to form a Clinically Integrated Health Care Network—a legal structure facilitating collaboration among health care providers with shared goals in performance, quality, and efficiency. The goal of our clinically integrated network is to bring Ohio’s behavior health providers across the care continuum together to promote best practices in patient experience, population health, and per capita health care costs.
Our health care landscape is undergoing sweeping changes, partially attributable to policy changes such as the shift from fee-for-service to value-based health care reimbursement and Ohio’s behavior health redesign. Recent legislation such as the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 calls for health care organizations to find new ways of addressing cost, quality, and value across systems. Clinical integration is central to confronting these challenges and remain on the cutting edge of health care reform.
Designed with members and patients in mind, the Clinically Integrated Health Network is:
Committed to data sharing and performance monitoring
Embracing the Social Determinants of Health, our collaboration with each other, health plans, health systems, and health information exchanges has produced positive gains for our clients and their communities. Lately, our clinical goals have focused on improving hospitalization follow-up rates and use of first line psychosocial care to prevent unnecessary drug treatment. We have achieved positive outcomes across HEDIS measures and other social measures including housing and employment.
