Why do independent clinics and facilities join Integrity Health Network? Because the world around them has become increasingly biased against independent practitioners. Health care reform, at both the state and federal level, is focused on integrated systems sharing capitation, bundled payments and total cost of care. How does a small clinic participate in a world in which they are being squeezed out? They can sell to their local hospital or health system and become employed. Or, for those who truly love owning and running their clinics, they can look to Integrity to help them navigate the changes around the corner.

Integrity Health Network provides a host of services to their member clinics and facilities. Some of the core fundamentals of Integrity are providing a robust, mature, clinically-integrated quality improvement program to the network, negotiating health plan contracts with Minnesota, Wisconsin and national players, and offering group purchasing opportunities. In addition, we stay abreast of emerging trends and legislation that relate to health care, whether it's finding a response for independents to Accountable Care Organizations or meeting the e-prescribing mandates in a cost efficient and time effective manner. Integrity offers independent clinics the opportunity to focus on providing health care; not researching legislative mandates.

Additionally, we offer collegiality and networking to clinic staff who may otherwise feel isolated. Stuck on a human resources issue? Ask any of the other 40-some administrators. Unsure of how to look at the latest lab test? Ask at our Lab Manager meeting. Independent clinic physicians, administrators and staff are not alone. They just feel that way sometimes.
