ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- For the 13th consecutive year OSF HealthCare has been ranked in the Top 100 IHNs among the nearly 600 integrated healthcare networks in the United States. Specifically, OSF HealthCare was ranked 25th by SDI, a healthcare informatics joint venture firm, as reported in the January 24th issue of Modern Healthcare.

SDI* has been ranking integrated systems since 1994 and this year’s Top 100 was chosen from nearly 600 non-specialty regional integrated health networks from around the country. The rating system analyzes each IHN’s performance level in the following categories: hospital utilization, financial stability, physician participation, services and access, contractual capabilities, out-patient utilization, integration and integrated technology. The eight categories consist of thirty-three weighted attributes that SDI has determined to be the key indicators for assessing the current and future success of an IHN.
Last year OSF HealthCare was ranked 16th and in 2009 was ranked 25th.
