The St. Louis Integrated Health Network (IHN) was established in 2003 to improve accessibility, quality, and affordability of healthcare for the uninsured and underinsured through increased integration and coordination of safety net heath care providers. In alliance with primary and specialty medical care providers in St. Louis, IHN serves over 172,000 patients through 480,000 primary care encounters and 125,000 specialty care encounters. Current IHN initiatives include: Network Master Patient Index (NMPI), Community Referral Coordinator Program (CRC), and Breast Cancer Referral Program. CRC utilizes Referral Coordinators to connect non-emergent emergency department patients with primary care providers in 23 health centers integrated into the network (IHN, 2010).
