On Demand Webinar | Overview | Revenue Cycle

Building a better network for patients, providers and the bottom line


Healthcare leaders are establishing integrated networks (CINs) to enhance patient care, reduce costs, and drive the transition to value. This webinar describes how to build an engaged provider network of primary care physicians and specialist within the system, as well as employed and independent physicians across other settings of care throughout the community - which is critical to any CIN's success.

Learn how and why an adopted data-driven approach for developing a robust provider network serves as the foundation for a new patient referral strategy that reduces leakage and improves continuity of care. These real-world insights will highlight how to grow your network while also keeping it narrow to ensure that patients receive the highest-value care.
After this program, you'll be able to..
  • Summarize the key components of a data-driven approach to building a provider network
  • Determine how much revenue is at-risk due to inefficient referral management
  • Understand how real-time analytics help to pinpoint the right community partners for your network
  • Identify where your organization can drive revenue by boosting in-network referrals and improving efficiency
  • Explain how reducing patient leakage enhances care coordination and leads to better outcomes.
