Contracting

For over thirty years, IPN’s member physicians and their patients have experienced the benefits of our value based managed care contracts aimed at improving quality and controlling health care costs. By sharing the responsibility of managing these patient populations, IPN provides benefits for the overall success of all member physicians’ practices.

For many of IPN’s member physicians, being an independent provider is a very important aspect of their practice. Being a member of IPN offers security and strength of numbers of the collective group that is hard to come by for the typical independent physician or independent physician group.  Bringing its collective group of physicians together also gives IPN and its physicians the ability to partner with payers under value based contracts which is something they cannot do on their own due to the smaller patient panels of each physician/clinic as well as the lack of the necessary infrastructure needed to perform under these types of contracts.

IPN’s active and involved Board of Directors designs, implements and monitors programs which assist member physicians with the various clinical and administrative processes and tools needed to succeed in value based care. Since IPN is a nonprofit, physician led, physician driven company, IPN’s successes and corresponding rewards are passed through to its members.  Our member physicians recommend IPN to other independent physicians because IPN allows them to further their own practices and maintain their independence.

IPN holds annual IPN Member Physician/Office Manager meetings to update members on the status of IPN’s contracted health plans, IPN’s clinical and quality initiatives and IPN’s other value added programs.

As IPN continues to grow into the model and organization of choice for all independent practitioners, its increased market size and continued success in value based agreements help insure that independent physicians remain relevant in any healthcare delivery forum.

To experience the benefits of a network of likeminded, independent physicians, IPN invites you to apply today.
