MyHealth First Network (MyHFN) is a clinically-integrated network of physicians and healthcare providers who share a common goal of improving health outcomes, reducing healthcare costs and enhancing the patient experience. Providers play a key role in the development of program components, such as quality goals and performance initiatives, and in network governance.
The network is led by a 12-member Board of Managers who provides leadership and oversight for the network, as well as a number of committees whose focus is on improving and standardizing care.
Over 2,000 healthcare providers across eleven counties in the upstate region of South Carolina currently participate in the network. These counties include Abbeville, Anderson, Greenville, Greenwood, Laurens, McCormick, Newberry, Oconee, Pickens, Saluda and Spartanburg.
As stated above, the network’s main goal is to improve health outcomes, reduce healthcare costs and enhance the patient experience. Other goals include:
- Improve the overall health and wellness of the patient populations served by the network
- Develop and share best practices to provide quality patient care
- Provide care management of targeted populations
- Operate efficiently and use network resources to optimize performance and reduce costs
- Focus on enhancing the participating organizations’ collective and individual ability to deliver patient-focused, high-value care
- Serve a broad geographic footprint, increasing access to care in traditionally medically underserved areas
- Be viewed as a desirable network to patients
