Amerinet supports both acute and alternate care providers nationwide so we understand that the needs of Integrated Delivery Networks (IDNs) vary greatly from rural healthcare providers or physician offices from surgery centers. That’s why Amerinet takes the approach of treating our members not as a mass market, but as a community of one – one organization at a time. It takes a rare mix of flexibility, the ability to customize and the willingness to connect peers to solve problems. Partnerships with industry organizations help us to understand and identify the unique needs of healthcare providers and meet them with innovative products and services. This integrated strategy enables our members to focus their energies on providing quality care to their patients.
