Catholic Health Initiatives Report.
Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) is a group of non‐ profit and for profit organizations that comprise one of the nation’s largest Catholic health care systems. CHI has operations in 17 states, with a service area that covers approximately 54 million people, or approximately 17% of the U.S. population.
CHI and Dignity Health have signed a definitive agreement to combine ministries and create a new, nonprofit Catholic health system.
The new health system will include more than 700 care sites and 139 hospitals, offering people and communities access to quality care delivered by approximately 159,000 employees and more than 25,000 physicians and other advanced practice clinicians. The organizations are geographically complementary with no overlap across hospital service areas.
CHI’s operations are located primarily within ten regions: Colorado, Pacific Northwest, Nebraska, Kentucky, Texas, Iowa, Ohio, Arkansas, Tennessee and North Dakota/Minnesota.
Working with an Integrated Delivery Network (IDN) has evolved over the years with accounts becoming larger, although fewer in number. Medical device and pharmaceutical sales reps no longer sell directly to pharmacists or physicians as business operations and profit have become as, if not more, important than clinical decisions.
Working successfully with IDNs is dependent upon knowing and understanding which, and how many, types of site of care and decision-makers there are in the organization. This will not include hospitals but also medical groups, long-term care, outpatient centers and clinics, specialty pharmacy, and strategy for bundled payments and population health.
