The St. Louis Integrated Health Network, through collaboration and partnership, strives for quality, accessible and affordable healthcare services for all residents of Metropolitan St. Louis, with an emphasis on the medically underserved. By finding new ways to coordinate care, align caregivers and care plans, connect systems, share data and embed a racial equity lens, as well as trauma-informed methodologies into its work, IHN produces measurable results for its member organizations, improved outcomes for the patients they serve and a more livable, productive and prosperous region for us all.
The St. Louis Integrated Health Network (IHN) is a healthcare intermediary whose members collaborate across institutional boundaries to co-create and advance a common agenda focused on developing solutions that eliminate healthcare disparities by improving the quality, accessibility and affordability of healthcare for St. Louis’ most vulnerable and underserved citizens. IHN’s members represent the vast majority of our region’s safety net healthcare providers including the leaders of local community health centers, hospital systems, academic medical schools, public health departments and other safety net institutions.
IHN anchors and incubates new models of care that reimagine a healthcare system that works equitably for the all St. Louisans by prioritizing the needs of low income patients. As exemplified by programs like PULSE, RE-LINK and the Pipeline to Compassionate Care Program, IHN’s work focuses on solving complex, systemic healthcare problems related to access and quality with the goal of creating community-wide solutions to the most challenging public health problems of our time. Making safety net services more efficient, effective and equitable for these populations creates the conditions necessary for a stronger, healthier St. Louis.
