The Pennsylvania Medical Society believes that protecting physicians’ decision-making ability and practice autonomy is essential to successfully transitioning medical practices and health care systems to value-based payment models. Value-based models, such as clinically integrated networks (CINs), lead to better collaboration among health care providers and facilities, which improve quality and efficiency.
PAMED started the Practice Options Initiative (POI) with this mission in mind.
The POI will create a management services organization (MSO) and CINs to equip Pennsylvania physicians with the tools to successfully navigate the rapidly changing health care world.

Clinically Integrated Networks
The POI is in the process of creating clinically integrated networks (CINs) in several Pennsylvania markets. We will start in two markets: the Lehigh Valley region and southeast Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Montgomery, and Delaware counties).
PAMED members explain the idea behind CINs and how it would help their medical practices provide higher quality value while staying independent:
