Message from the CEO - Bill Pickart
At Integrated Medical Partners (IMP), our mission and passion is to help visionary physician practices position themselves for long-term success. We achieve this by combining revenue cycle expertise with informatics-driven decision support and superior client services, equipping practices with the critical business intelligence and clinical resources required to succeed.
We understand and help you navigate the myriad of new challenges physician practices face; declining reimbursements, increased hospital, payer and patient expectations, changes in payment models and the consolidation trend represent just a few. We partner with hospital-based practices and ancillary patient treatment centers to not only manage but overcome these hurdles to ensure their sustained independence and growth in the swiftly changing healthcare landscape.
As we have worked with various hospital-based specialties and experienced firsthand their needs and desires to avoid the consolidation trend, we have crafted a unique business model for those practices and operators seeking to remain independent, yet lacking the resources to do so. As a result of our experience, we launched the IMP Collaboration Model to help practices create regional non-competing collaborations which supply them with the necessary resources, subspecialty access and economies of scale to thrive and succeed independently in the market.
Our passion at IMP is supporting and fostering high-performing practices. We truly are your partner in success. We empower your practice with the solutions to drive innovation and achieve superior results. Let’s have a conversation about fueling your practice’s performance.
