CIN Partners Share: Strategies for Provider Engagement


Provider engagement is crucial to success. In July 2015, the California Improvement Network’s partners gathered to discuss this topic. What is “provider engagement”? The health care industry is undergoing widespread change, largely led by the implementation of health care reform. Provider engagement is the participation by providers needed to drive organizational or behavioral change or both. Provider engagement is not the end game; the ultimate goal is improved performance and outcomes.

Together, California Improvement Network partners concluded that organizational change is easier when providers are involved early on in identifying problems and designing solutions.

These three partners gave presentations to the group:

  • HealthCare Partners
  • Hill Physicians Medical Group
  • Sutter Health
