As the one of the state’s largest health systems, we see it as our responsibility to continue looking for ways to improve the health of the population. Many patients are paying larger portions of their medical payments than ever before. We are committed to ensuring that the people of North Carolina have greater access to affordable, high-quality care. One way we are achieving that is through the recently announced UNC Health Alliance.
The UNC Health Alliance is a clinically integrated network (CIN), or an organization of hospitals and physicians who collaborate to improve quality and control health care costs and are able to contract together to achieve their goals. In this case, there are four primary goals of the UNC Health Alliance:
- Transform care delivery by creating a physician-led CIN with UNC Health Care that is accountable for the full continuum of care.
- Lead the market in high-quality, cost-efficient care through population health management that includes engaging patients in the ownership of their care.
- Become the preferred partner for physicians in our communities through a culture of collaboration.
- Become the preferred partner for employers and payers who are aligned with the goal of transforming care and creating more value for patients.
Through collaboration and an intense focus on patient care, we will set measurable benchmarks to determine quality of care and hold ourselves and our physicians accountable, ultimately delivering high-quality, cost-effective care to our patients.
