Why I joined IPN
Dr. Lopez initially joined IPN for the simple reason that over his entire career as a physician, his goal has been to provide the best care to his patients and his community. For Dr. Lopez, being an independent physician is the best way to achieve this goal. Dr. Lopez suggests that being a member of IPN is a perfect fit for those independent practitioners who want to continue the tradition of delivering exceptional, affordable patient care to benefit the entire community.
A membership with Independent Physicians Network offers support and promotes independent physicians at different stages in their careers in many ways. For those physicians who wish to become independent practitioners, whether they are recent medical school graduates or physicians who have been in employed positions, IPN offers support in developing their own independent practices. IPN provides many services and resources to member physicians to assure better management of their patients, including health care practice tools to provide support and guidance with purchasing, electronic medical records systems, billing systems, and practice administration
Though our rapidly changing health care environment may suggest that the power of the independent physician has been declining during the last few years, Dr. Lopez notes that IPN continues to provide its member physicians the tools to succeed independently and helps them to successfully grow their businesses. At IPN, we are committed supporting and encouraging the independence of the future of medicine.
