The Performance Summit for Northwest Healthcare

Embright is the Clinically Integrated Network (CIN) of the Pacific Northwest.

Through the partnership of UW Medicine (UWM), MultiCare Health System (MHS) and LifePoint Health (LH), we are poised to change the way healthcare is planned and delivered – to improve the health of the members we serve.

Why a CIN?

All Together Better

A Clinically Integrated Network (CIN) is a system of healthcare that finally reconciles and aligns the interests of patient members, employers, health providers, insurers, and plan brokers & administrators.

Through thoughtful, sensible cooperation, our CIN facilitates the creation and adoption of high standards for care; encourages the sharing of and activation from data to improve population health and outcomes; smooths the coordination of care to enhance the experience of patients and clinicians, and; streamlines the contracting process to improve efficiency.

All of this is achieved by aligning incentives to enable CIN participants to improve the access to and quality of healthcare, while increasing the scale and magnitude of the positive impact on our communities.
