For Patients

What is QCIPN?

The Queen’s Clinically Integrated Physician Network (QCIPN) is a department within the Queen’s Health System that collaborates with healthcare providers, hospitals, patients, and insurers. Doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers who work at one of the Queen’s Health System locations or at many other practices in the state join our network to access our tools and resources and so that they can offer their patients our programs and services. There are over 1000 healthcare providers in QCIPN.

What is an Accountable Care Organization (ACO)?

An Accountable Care Organization (ACO) is a voluntary program for primary care physicians, specialists, hospitals, and other healthcare providers to come together to provide coordinated, high-quality, patient-centered care. In an ACO, healthcare providers have the opportunity to work with an extended care team of nurses, social workers, nutritionists, pharmacists, and mental health professionals. This team-based care model helps patients get the proper care at the right time while avoiding unnecessary tests and expenditures. 

Most of the providers who are in QCIPN also participate in the Queen’s Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) Accountable Care Organization.
