We Are The Physicians' Network

A Physician-Led Enterprise

Our Integrated Network is governed by a 12-person Board comprising eight practicing primary care and specialty physicians. Four other Trustees include a Tufts Medicine hospital representative, an independent Trustee, and Tufts Medicine’s Chief Physician Executive and Clinically Integrated Network President as ex officio members.

Central Planning, Local Decision-Making

Our Network sets an enterprise agenda for managing populations in value-based contracts, establishes performance goals, and designs best-practice systems.

Our Regional Clinical Councils develop strategies to organize local care teams to effectively manage populations and drive growth in geographic markets. Each Council convenes care teams from across the continuum to improve performance through activities such as unblinded peer-review of data, clinical care model design and clinical and cost performance monitoring. Councils are responsible for:

  • Monitoring quality and cost, identifying gaps in the care continuum and addressing underperformance
  • Defining strategies to address clinical under-performance and closing gaps in the continuum of care
  • Reporting and managing financial performance in the regions and aligning resource allocations to Network goals
