HealthShare Unified Care Record Improves Performance Measures for Rush Health’s Clinically Integrated Network

Rush Health is a Clinically Integrated Network (CIN) in the greater Chicago area with 4 member hospitals, nearly 80 affiliated physician practices, more than 1,400 physicians, and 625 non-physician clinicians. Like other CINs, Rush Health must bridge data needs between its provider members and the payers with whom they contract.


80% of Rush Health members use the Epic electronic health record system. And the organization’s health information technology philosophy is “Epic first.” Ray Halper, Chief Information Officer, Rush Health, explains, “When we need a report or other information, we look first to get that from one of the Epic instances. When we can’t, then we look to other solutions.” In these cases, Rush Health uses InterSystems HealthShare software to fill the gaps.
