Unique clinics. Collaborative network.

As Minnesota’s only clinically integrated network dedicated exclusively to kids, we provide award-winning, high-quality care and strive to keep costs low through best practice sharing, transparent data, coordinated care and active relationships with families.

Our Goals


Network alignment

Participants include independently owned and Children’s Minnesota owned practices along the entire care continuum of primary, specialty and hospital-based care. Recognizing the breadth and depth of our reach to pediatric patients in this community, we are mutually accountable and aligned toward the goal of highest quality, cost-effective care.


Performance program

Children’s Health Network manages a robust performance improvement program, designed by our physician leadership, that focuses on clinical outcomes, best practice guidelines, cost of care and utilization. We partner with our member clinics to continually elevate these metrics to ensure best practice standards and outcomes for children.


Data analytics

We use a robust data set to compile and analyze quality and cost opportunities across our network. This data is shared with our member clinics to equip them with patient-specific engagement opportunities to improve patient care and cost.


Value-based care

The network works with our clinics to engage commercial and public payers in contract arrangements that prioritize pediatrics and create opportunities for value-focused reimbursement.


Guidance & support

The CHN team provides support to member clinics on operational issues, including policy updates, referral management and coding guidance.
