UniNet Grand Island Chapter

Each UniNet chapter has its own medical director and leadership committees. Contracts with payors are unique to individual chapters, in addition to clinical initiatives that are specifically designed to improve the quality of health care in each chapter's community.

Leadership

UniNet's Grand Island chapter was formed in 2013, and we've focused on creating clinical initiatives that will help local providers achieve the triple aim: improved health of the population, decreased per capita cost and improved patient experience.

My hope is that the clinical, financial and claims data that UniNet provides will help you practice more efficiently. I'm here as a resource for you; please contact me if you would like to discuss any CIN issues, activities or programs.
