As part of its continued commitment to strengthening specialty physician practices, AmerisourceBergen today announced that it is launching expanded offerings to specialty physician practices through IPN Solutions. As a long-standing GPO focused on specialty care, IPN Solutions has offered practices premium pharmaceutical contracting services and purchasing support, preferred access to educational opportunities, and been an advocate for community-based care initiatives and issues for more than 20 years. Now, practices will have access to these established programs and an expanded suite of solutions, which include enhanced business insights, revenue cycle management services, valuable clinical research opportunities and more offerings that integrate with existing practice technologies.
Specialty practices who are members of IPN Solutions can leverage technology, services, and informatics to drive higher-quality and lower-cost care in their community. Some of the programs and technology platforms offered through IPN Solutions include:
- InfoDive®: a web-based business intelligence solution that allows practices to quickly and easily analyze internal and comparative data in the areas of coding, productivity, marketing, revenue collection and more.
- Medically Integrated Dispensing: a suite of pharmacy solutions that assist specialty practices in ensuring patient adherence and capturing additional revenue in oral specialty medications and supportive care products.
- Consulting Services: help practices optimize patient satisfaction and their business and clinical operations through revenue cycle management or through the addition of new revenue streams.
- AdvanceIQ Network: a research network designed for independent community practices to improve access to research opportunities and enhanced clinical trial matching.
“In this dynamic GPO environment, our customers have an abundance of choices with how they support their patient care model. At IPN Solutions, our goal is to provide the tools specialty practices need to elevate their business, maintain operational efficiency, and support value-based care models that rely on patient satisfaction and engagement,” Brian Ansay, President Specialty Physician Group Purchasing, AmerisourceBergen. “Now with IPN Solutions, existing members and those that join us will have direct access to a dedicated team support structure, including strategic account managers, directors, and administrators who will assist with maximizing operational efficiencies and contract opportunities, as well as integrating solutions into their practices.”
For more than 20 years, IPN supported physicians in their mission to provide better patient care through contract pricing on pharmaceuticals and clinical and operational education. IPN Solutions will now provide that same support, but with augmented and wrap-around technology, programs and service offerings. IPN Solutions supports neurology, rheumatology, ophthalmology, retina, gastroenterology, dermatology, and urology practices. Visit www.ipnonline.com for more information on IPN Solutions.
