IPS offers Northeast Ohio independent physicians a continuum of services for practice operations and financial management, including:
Practice (revenue cycle) management
Electronic medical records (EMR)
Managed care contracting
A suite of a la carte consulting services
Partnering with IPS allows independent medical practitioners to maintain their independence while keeping pace with larger, affiliated practices and meeting the new technology requirements mandated under the Affordable Care Act of 2010. IPS also provides billing and collections services and has goals to organize physicians into an Independent Practice Association (IPA) to group contract with healthcare insurance companies.
The long-term goal of IPS is to position itself for the inevitable changes in health care as a result of new reimbursement models and healthcare reform legislation. With its technology infrastructure, IPS will be able to tackle the challenges of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and other population management models. – less–ZoomInfo
