The Merit Health Network is comprised of two physician led entities: Merit IPA and Merit CIN. Our approach is to offer physician practices varying mechanisms to enhance care coordination, quality, and efficiency to manage our patients' health throughout the entirety of their care experiences. Merit CIN provides a platform for our physicians to collaboratively provide seamless care across provider settings to truly provide our patients the care they deserve, when they need it most. Merit is proactively responding to the pressure on today's independent providers during an era riddled with evolving reimbursement methodologies, provider and payer consolidation, and relentless regulatory uncertainty. Coming together to form Merit provides an opportunity for advocacy efforts to not only sustain independence, but thrive.
The Merit Health Network offers:
- A unified approach for physicians to collaborate on utilization management, quality improvement, and population health management
- A self-governing platform to allow physicians to protect patients during an era of turbulent reimbursement changes and major insurance consolidation, while exploring the possibilities of cutting edge technology
- A reduction of physicians' administrative burdens in terms of credentialing, contracting, analytics, and marketing of physician services to community stakeholders
