Central Virginia Health Network (CVHN) was established in 1993 by leading not-for-profit hospitals in the Richmond, Virginia area. The mission of CVHN is to enhance each member’s ability to provide more efficient health care, by focusing on opportunities that can be achieved by, or enhanced through, collaboration with other CVHN partners.
In 1996 and in partnership with local physicians, CVHN created inHEALTH, formerly known as CenVaNet, to provide a vehicle for managed care risk contracting. Since that time, inHealth has evolved into a Care Management Organization (CMO). Its hallmark programs include:
- One of only 15 sites across the country that participated in a six-year Medicare Coordinated Care Demonstration that was completed in 2008.
- State of the art health information call center providing communities with access to registered nurses for health information, community resources and physician referrals.
- Health coaching and wellness programs for employers designed to support and enhance the health of their employees.
- Group purchasing opportunity for medical liability insurance.
During the last few years, interest in health information technology has become a national priority. inHEALTH and its partner, Virginia Urology, recognized the need to work with our providers to meet this growing opportunity. In 2000, MedVirginia, was created to develop the infrastructure for community clinical data exchange and support physician’s adoption of health information technology.
A major accomplishment in 2005 was CVHN’s establishment of one of the nation’s largest Offsite Reprocessing Centers (ORC). The ORC currently provides instrument sterilization and materials management distribution in a 67,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility located in Richmond, VA.
