The network develops and implements evidence-based, data-driven clinical initiatives to improve outcomes, increase efficiency and reduce costs in the inpatient and outpatient setting. By sharing data and representing a broad cross-section of the community, EHN negotiates payor contracts as a network in order to align payments and incentives with the performance and quality of the care delivered.

Sixteen of the 18-member board of directors are physicians, representing independent and employed primary and specialty practitioners. The remaining two directors are the chief executives of EvergreenHealth and Overlake Medical Center and Clinics.
How is EHN structured?
EHN is an LLC owned by Eastside Health Alliance (EHA), a joint venture between EvergreenHealth and Overlake Medical Center and Clinics. EHA was created to deliver high-quality care and exceptional patient experience at a lower overall cost, improve access and coordination of care, and to enhance the depth and breadth of services offered on the Eastside. The board of directors, in accordance with the executive director, guide the day-to-day operations and strategic decisions. The Network is supported by four working committees: quality and patient experience, cost and utilization, network development and nominating, and contracting.
