Tufts Medicine Integrated Network

A distinctively different population health enterprise.

Our Integrated Network comprises private practice and employed physicians, and community and academic providers who have come together as equal partners in governing our Network and building healthy communities.

We are organized as one unified Network but with an operating focus on geographic regions where local care teams convene in clinical councils to ensure we can best manage risk and outcomes at a neighborhood level.

We define success as appropriately moving care out of hospitals, not into hospital beds. Our Network makes possible our vision to deliver care close to where people live, work and play.

Membership in our Integrated Network feels different. Hospitals are our partners; their bottom lines are not our Network’s purpose. Collaboration and collegiality are the attributes we value in our leaders and teams. Clear accountability for continuous improvement defines our culture and determines which providers are in – and which are out – of our Network.
