Slide notes:Many organizations seek to provide a broad range of patient care services by developing an integrated health care delivery network or system. An integrated network can be as simple as an informal association between primary care providers with local hospitals or medical centers. A more common approach is to establish a formal organization in which primary, secondary, and tertiary services are managed by a single organization supporting their community and other targeted geographic locations. These services can be provided in a central location, or the facilities can span across a specific geographic locationwhich could include nationwide and even international locations. 10
