The American Rheumatology Network (ARN) continues to grow rapidly as rheumatologists discover the value of the ARN-GPO and the benefits of additional no-cost services such as data analytics and value-based contracting. Eighteen months after forming, ARN has grown to over 300 prescribing providers, more than double that number if counting administrators and clinical staff members. We believe this success follows the singular focus of ARN, providing high-value services to empower independent rheumatology practices across the U.S.
ARN always puts the patient first. We believe that community rheumatology practice (private practice) is the highest quality, most accessible, and lowest cost site of care for our patients.
ARN exemplifies the collaborative spirit of rheumatologists, sourcing needs and solutions from its cooperative network of large and small practices across the country. ARN members work together through our scientific steering committee and through joint discussions with major stakeholders such as manufacturers and payers. Practice administrators collaborate closely through scheduled calls, to identify and share best practices. Indeed, economies of scale operate at the level of idea-sharing just as importantly as they do at the economic level!
