Who operates Nebraska Health Network?
We are governed by a 12-member board that includes physicians and chief financial officers from Nebraska Medicine and Methodist Health System. Several physicians are also members and leaders of the Nebraska Health Network Medical Management and Membership Committees. Nebraska Health Network is led by physicians based in Omaha who are very familiar with the local health care market.
What makes Nebraska Health Network different from other networks?
- We are locally based in Omaha, so we are familiar with the health care concerns affecting Nebraskans, from individuals to employers based in the state.
- Our organization is physician-led, meaning the physicians taking care of you and your family in the community are the same physicians determining how to evolve and transform health care.
- We are providing physicians with the necessary tools and resources so they’re better educated on health care costs and can begin making practice changes that retain high-quality care and keep efficiency in mind.
