Clinically Integrated Network (CIN)
The AMA defines clinical integration as “the means to facilitate the coordination of patient care across conditions, providers, settings, and time in order to achieve care that is safe, timely, effective, efficient, equitable, and patient-focused. Without coordination across multiple settings, patients are more likely to receive duplicative diagnostic tests, have adverse prescription drug interactions and get conflicting care plans.
The Triangle Medical group will be a CIN formed by like-minded independent primary care physicians to deliver more efficeint , higher quality care that is more cost-effective for their patients in the Triangle. Providers in the CIN will enjoy the advantages of being part of a larger group without having to give up their individual practices
