Physician Organizations

Ensuring independent viability and success

Physician organizations, such as individual practices, multi-specialty groups, and Independent Physician Associations (IPAs), face a growing number of challenges in a healthcare landscape that is increasingly focused on consolidation. These physician organizations, whether independent or aligned to a health system, are committed to providing the resources to help their physicians deliver high-value care.

Physician organizations are often focused on transitioning to a population health management care delivery model and helping their providers succeed with various public and commercial payer initiatives, such as Pay-for-Performance, PQRS, GPRO, CQM for MU, Accountable Care, and other value-based reimbursement programs. They often devote resources to closing preventive care and chronic disease care gaps, patient outreach, care management and the coordination of patients and providers across specialty, location, and EHR solution.

Philips Wellcentive has a 10-year history of providing solutions that allow physician organizations to improve the quality and cost of care they deliver and succeed with alternative value-based payment models. We help IPAs and similar organizations manage programs for these new payment models, avoid payment penalties and effectively capitalize on the payments and bonuses offered by public and private payers.
