Unibased proudly announces that several customers have again received the ranking as IMS Top 100 Integrated Healthcare Networks:

IMS has been tracking the development of the local and regional, non-specialty integrated healthcare networks (IHNs) market since April 1994. They survey the universe of IHNs annually using a standard methodology for collecting the data, and rate the IHNs nationally on their performance level and degree of integration.  The rating system is a means for identifying the IMS Top 100 IHNs based on critical success factors, including each network’s ability to operate as a unified organization in eight categories: integration, integrated technology, contractual capabilities, outpatient utilization, financial stability, services and access, hospital utilization, and physicians.
