Atlantic Health System launches CIN to spur collaboration among 2,500 physicians

Morristown, N.J.-based Atlantic Health System created the Atlantic Alliance, a physician-led clinically integrated network aimed at coordinating care between the health system and other New Jersey providers.

The alliance, comprising physicians affiliated with Atlantic Health System and independent providers, is designed to assist clinicians with value- and risk-based reimbursement models.

The CIN will encourage better coordination between Atlantic Health System's affiliated organizations, including Morristown-based Atlantic ACO, Summit, N.J.-based Optimus Healthcare Partners and Healthcare Quality Partners. The CIN will also collaborate with independent partners like Summit-based Vista Independent Practice Association and AHS Health Network, according to Atlantic Health System.

Altogether, these organizations comprise 2,500 physicians and have earned more than $42 million in shared savings since 2012.
