About the Book

The formation of IPA, PHO and MSO entities are several organizational models that hospitals and physicians are investigating to consolidate clinical service and shared support service. The common goal of these organization types is to create a single business entity to maximize economic clout, provide quality of care and yet preserve some of the traditional values of autonomy. IPA, PHO and MSO Development Strategies: Building Successful Provider Alliances is your hands-on guide to practical, proactive development and participation in IPAs, PHOs, and MSOs from a business, marketing and profitability standpoint.

The book includes chapters on: government and regulatory issues pertaining to the development of IPA, PHO and MSO models; capitalization concerns involved with each model; administrative, billing, human resource management and other operational issues involved in the MSO model; and successful and unsuccessful case studies of PHO design.

The book includes forms, worksheets, and examples of documents needed to form one of these organizations from the ground up. In the end, you'll know how to:

  • Form a sound and effective business
    plan and budget for each type of
    physician group
  • Decide in which type of physician group fits your needs best
  • "Data Ownership elicits Power", the author shows you where it resides, how to get it and how to use it
  • Comply with government regulations

Collaboration, Integration and Alignment are the name of the game if you want to survive financially. IPA, PHO and MSO Development Strategies: Building Successful Provider Alliances will show you how.

Foreword by Albert Holloway, President & CEO, IPA Association of America
