BHN is a comprehensive provider network that accepts patient care and financial accountability for those served by the network. It is one of a few networks in Arizona serving patients in a population health management model. This model offers a highly coordinated patient experience through a primary care setting that seeks to improve patient outcomes, provide more effective management of chronic care and emphasize wellness. A key result of this patient-centered model will be higher efficiency that will result in reducing costs. A foundation of the Banner Health Network’s ability to deliver highly coordinated and integrated patient care is an enhanced electronic medical records system that is utilized in all Banner hospitals.
