UNC Health Alliance

UNC Health Alliance is UNC Health’s statewide, physician-led clinically integrated network and Population Health Services Organization. We are transforming healthcare delivery and payment models on behalf of over 6,000 physicians, including community-based, independent physicians along with those affiliated with UNC Health.

At the heart of each patient’s care is a primary care physician. UNC Health Alliance unites patient care across settings – primary care, specialists, hospitals and after-care facilities – to ensure that all care is coordinated, and that the patient receives the programs and services to help them achieve their well-being goals.
