Network Integration Diagnostic

Pinpoint gaps in your care continuum

To meet patients’ needs across the continuum, providers need to integrate care delivery across sites and service lines. Whether you are one hospital or a multi-hospital system, you need to understand where gaps are hindering performance on patient retention, care coordination, capacity and access efficiency, and clinical standardization. 

The Network Integration Diagnostic allows you to find opportunities for improvement and identify which integration gaps are causing poor performance. Use this tool to:

  • Identify which relationships (e.g. primary care physician to specialist or inpatient to outpatient leaders) may require strengthening
  • Evaluate the relationship to understand key areas for improvement (e.g. incentive design)
  • Understand which strategic objectives will benefit from improved coordination
