What is St. Elizabeth Provider Network?

St. Elizabeth Provider Network (SEPN) is a Clinically Integrated Physician Hospital Organization (CIPHO) that aligns employed and independent physicians to improve the health of our patient population by establishing common quality initiatives, economic incentives and care management infrastructure. 

Clinical Integration is an active and ongoing process to evaluate and modify practice patterns by the program’s provider participants and create a high degree of interdependence and cooperation among the providers to ensure quality and control costs. Participation in an effective clinically integrated network will provide SEPN’s members the ability to contract collectively with health plans without violating antitrust laws.
