Our CIN will allow UCSF Health to maintain a high quality network of providers to maximize impact on health care delivery performance and coordination of care, resulting in better value of care for patients in the Bay Area.

Our CIN will allow us the option of participating in value-based payment options over time.


As articulated in our five-year strategic plan, Vision 2020, UCSF Health will assume greater accountability for delivering a full continuum of affordable, integrated care—from primary to specialty care—for patients who look to UCSF as a provider of comprehensive health care services, partnering with other leading healthcare organizations in the Bay Area to create a high value, regional system of care.

In 2016, UCSF Health created a Clinically Integrated Network (CIN) to align independent physicians and UCSF Health-employed physicians in a collaborative effort to improve patient care and reduce overall health system costs.


To help improve the delivery of patient care, community providers may request a UCSF MD Link account. This tool allows for online referrals, placement of orders for labs, and communicates real-time patient vent notifications.
