Network alignment

Participants include independent clinics and those affiliated with or owned by Children’s Minnesota, and along the entire care continuum of primary, specialty and hospital-based care. Recognizing the breadth and depth of our reach to pediatric patients in this community, we are mutually accountable and aligned toward the goal of highest quality, cost-effective care.

Performance program

Children’s Health Network manages a robust performance improvement program, designed by our physician leadership, that focuses on clinical outcomes, best practice guidelines, cost of care and utilization. We partner with our clinic participants to continually elevate these metrics to ensure best practice standards and outcomes for children.

Data analytics

We use a robust data set to compile and analyze quality and cost opportunities across our network. This data is shared with our clinicians to equip them with patient-specific engagement opportunities to improve patient care and cost.

Value based care

The network works with our clinics to engage commercial and public payers in contract arrangements that prioritize pediatrics and create opportunities for value-focused reimbursement.

Consultative guidance and support

The CHN team provides additional support to clinic participants on business and clinical issues, including policy and regulatory compliance, referral management and coding.
