Meet the Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network: a trusted partner for high-quality, high-value healthcare.

Healthcare costs are skyrocketing. To preserve well-being and control your health plan costs, your employees need access to personalized, high-quality care that is close to work and home.

Our network provides the incentives, structure, and knowledge that can offer high-quality healthcare and significant, sustainable cost control.

We work with multiple national insurance carriers to offer highly coordinated healthcare services to more than 150,000 people across Tennessee and surrounding states. We have a proven track record of improving quality and costs, and we are committed to working with carriers, employers, and providers to invest in the health of communities across the state.

We also offer access to robust pediatric services, thanks to the participation of Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and more than 700 physicians trained in pediatric primary and specialty care.

How does it work?

We’ve brought the right partners to the table, working together to provide efficient, high-value healthcare. Our approach consists of three main components:

  • Coordination: Our physician-led structure is designed to allow all participating health systems and providers to contribute to our mission and vision of better health across Tennessee. We share clinical best practices across the network, enabling high-quality care as well as sustained cost control.
  • Incentives: Participating providers are rewarded when they improve the health of their patients and communities while also improving the experience and efficiency of care. In short, doctors and hospitals are rewarded for keeping members healthy, rather than billing for unnecessary services. We have now achieved shared savings by controlling costs for members for 3 years running.
  • Personalized Care: Our suite of clinical support services, such as Care Advising and Transitions Care, serves high-risk and hospitalized patients to ensure they stay as healthy as possible.
