IMS Top 100 Integrated Healthcare Networks 2012

IMS has been tracking the development of the local and regional, non-specialty integrated healthcare networks (IHNs) market since April 1994. We survey the universe of IHNs annually using a standard methodology for collecting the data, and rate the IHNs nationally on their performance level and degree of integration.

The rating system is a means for identifying the IMS Top 100 IHNs based on critical success factors, including each network’s ability to operate as a unified organization in eight categories: integration, integrated technology, contractual capabilities, outpatient utilization, financial stability, services and access, hospital utilization, and physicians.
