Mon Health System Joins AHN Clinically Integrated Network, Group Purchasing Organization

Officials with Mon Health System today announced that the Morgantown-based healthcare organization is joining the clinically integrated network (CIN) and the group purchasing organization run by Allegheny Health Network (AHN). Mon Health System will also collaborate with AHN’s Cardiovascular Institute to establish a heart failure program at Mon Health Medical Center.

Known as Physician Partners of Western PA, AHN’s CIN is a physician-led regional partnership of independent and AHN-employed physicians that coordinates care for nearly a quarter-million patients across various medical specialties and care sites. The CIN’s goal is to promote the delivery of high-quality, high-value health care through evidence-based clinical models, value-based payer contracting and shared accountability that creates better patient outcomes and experiences.

Other benefits to Mon Health System of being part of Physician Partners include access to advanced clinical and claims-based analytics and predictive modeling (through integrated electronic medical records and claims data) and the opportunity to participate in Alternative Payment Models (APMs).

Mon Health System is also joining AHN’s group-purchasing organization (GPO), which will enable the health system to secure better pricing and consistent sourcing for medical supplies. AHN’s GPO currently leverages the consolidated purchasing power of more than 90 hospital members to negotiate lower costs for medical-surgical supplies, implantable devices, and other items.

“We are so pleased to collaborate with AHN services and programs to enhance our offerings to our patients. Many of our physicians have a longstanding relationship with peer physicians at Allegheny General Hospital and other AHN facilities, including the burn center at West Penn Hospital. We are honored to call AHN a partner in providing higher level services to our patients. We are excited to collaborate in the CIN and GPO to improve outcomes and reduce costs for our patients,” said David Goldberg, President and CEO of Mon Health System.

Additionally, starting in June, AHN cardiologist and heart failure specialist Christopher Link, MD, will join the Mon Health Medical Center medical staff and begin a heart failure clinic at Mon Health Medical Center, bringing the advanced expertise of AHN’s nationally recognized Cardiovascular Institute closer to home for the residents of Morgantown and neighboring communities. Dr. Link joined AHN in 2019 from Maine Medical Partners. He received his medical degree from the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine and completed his residency and cardiology fellowships at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

“Allegheny Health Network is always excited to collaborate with outstanding providers like Mon Health System who share our commitment to the highest standards of clinical excellence and value-based care,” said Cynthia Hundorfean, President and CEO, AHN. “We look forward to working with the leadership of Mon Health System to help support their mission of service to the people of north central West Virginia.”
