Situation 

When faced with the challenges arising in the era of value-based care models, many healthcare organizations are reorganizing into Clinical Integration Networks (CINs).  A CIN is a legal and organizational designation, grouping primary care and specialty providers with hospital organizations and post-acute facilities. The goal of this organizational alignment is  better  coordination of care across all patient care settings and reduction of operating costs of care delivery.
