Through centralized, coordinated processes, Community-Integrated Health Networks provide a unified and consistent approach to program delivery.

What are the key benefits of a Community-Integrated Health Network?

  • Provides a uniform, consistent way for potential older adults to learn about and access programs and receive services
  • Increases program efficiency by reducing duplication of efforts
  • Appeals to health care entities, as there is one organization, rather than several, with which to interface and communicate
  • Can act on behalf of its partners to negotiate and sign contracts with the health care sector
  • Provides a framework to increase program reach and can respond to the volume demands of health plans or health care systems by aligning the efforts of many partner organizations
