Created out of a merger between Arizona Integrated Physicians (AIP) and Banner Physician Hospital Organization (BPHO), the goal of the Alliance is to create a differentiated single, unified market-wide independent physician organization. This organization supports practice transformation to nearly 1,500 providers through consistent, reliable, coordinated patient experience with improved accessibility, improved quality scores with lower cost of care.
Neighborhoods are a new concept to deliver care to Banner Health Network members. Based on geographic location, these neighborhoods include a spectrum of services from primary and specialty care to ancillary services like laboratory and home health. Dedicated support services for each neighborhood include an assistant medical director and a RAF educator.
