UC San Diego Health Affiliated Network is a collection of individual physicians, practices, and hospitals that have come together to improve patient care and reduce overall health care costs.
When did it start?
In 2014 UC San Diego Health began formally integrating with community physicians and local hospitals -- collaborating on administrative functions, business and clinical initiatives to improve efficiencies and benefit patients.
Today, UC San Diego Health is aligned with Tri-City Medical Center in Oceanside, El Centro Regional Medical Center in El Centro, and more than 500 select community physicians and specialists from San Diego, Imperial, and Riverside Counties. These providers, plus UC San Diego Health's clinical faculty, which includes 150 primary care physicians, over 1000 specialist physicians in 40 specialties, and hundreds of non-MD providers, are the foundation of our network.
Affiliated Network members collaborate on developing shared systems, infrastructure, care pathways, and quality initiatives to provide high-value health care to patients, employers and health plans.
Why did we create the network?
Partnering with local physicians expands the geographic footprint for UC San Diego Health and increases collaborative care throughout the network. This collaboration makes our network more attractive to payers and large employer organizations with which we can develop exclusive products.
How is it led?
The Affiliated Network has dedicated leaders and staff, and its own advisory board, including community physicians and UC San Diego Health faculty.
Changes in federal legislation have been adopted that shift how health care providers who see Medicare patients are paid. Networking helps practices respond to those changes.
