What is a Clinically Integrated Network?


Eastside Health Network (EHN) is a clinically integrated network (CIN) formed by providers from EvergreenHealth, Overlake Medical Center and Clinics and independent practices.

Together, EHN provides nearly 50,000 community members with access to providers who are working together to offer a more coordinated experience for better outcomes, and increased value for patients’ health care dollars.

A key advantage of the Eastside Health Network is its ability to share data and best practices among providers across the network. The integrated structure fosters provider-to-provider communication, paired with technology support. 

It also helps establish guidelines and resources for treating common, but serious, chronic diseases like diabetes.

A Better Value

EHN provides it's patients with a better experience and overall value because it partners to limit added costs by eliminating duplicate testing or other unnecessary care.

Dedicated EHN nurse care managers work one-on-one with at-risk patients as an extension of the primary care team to help them achieve their goals and prevent chronic conditions from worsening.

Technical Terms to Know

Clinically Integrated Network (CIN)
CINs align independent providers with a health system’s employed providers through a shared infrastructure that promotes provider collaboration. CINs improve patient outcomes and reduce costs because they incentivize providers to work together more effectively.

In-Network
Patients will typically pay the lowest out-of-pocket costs when they receive services from “in-network providers” who are part of their clinically integrated network, compared to providers who are out-of-network.
