“Minnesota Physician” magazine has named Integrity Health Network’s chief executive officer and president, Jeffrey L. Tucker, as one of the state’s 100 Most Influential Health Care leaders.
“I am truly humbled by this recognition of my peers,” says Tucker. “I am amazed at the stature of the individuals I join on this list. It was a surprise and an honor. The credit goes to our physicians, providers and staff who consistently push the envelope and achieve great things together.”
This honor is bestowed once every four years to individuals who achieve outstanding accomplishments in the field of health care leadership, according to “Minnesota Physician” publisher Mike Starnes. The cover story is featured in the current issue of the magazine.
“These are physicians, administrators, executives, and other industry leaders who serve in private practice, systems, health plans, or public health capacities,” said Starnes. “All of these individuals have made significant contributions to improving health care in their communities over the past four years.”
During that time Integrity Health Network and its members lead the region in starting to meet new mandates for Health Care Homes and Total Cost of Care contracting — a bold new way of synchronizing health providers reimbursement with cost, quality and patient satisfaction measurement by the state. IHN’s Quality Improvement measures, such as its Care Continuum Initiative, also earned statewide recognition for its revolutionary approach to the primary care-specialist referral process.
Integrity Health Network represents 225 physicians from more than 20 fields of medicine at 50 sites across Northern Minnesota and Northwestern Wisconsin. These physicians create the largest, most comprehensive health network of independently operated clinics in the region.
