What’s in store for the healthcare industry?

It’s no secret that big changes are coming to the healthcare industry, and it’s causing no small amount of anxiety for both hospitals and physicians. The situation is made worse by the fact that nobody knows what form those changes will take.

The Dust Hasn’t Settled

There is no shortage of experimentation. New payment systems are being considered all the time—accountable care organizations, bundled payments, episode-of-care programs, to name a few. Clear winners have yet to emerge, and until some political dust settles, it’s unlikely that they will.


In the meantime, one thing you can be sure of is that Inpatient Medical Associates will be adaptable to any change that comes about.

Change as Opportunity

Inpatient Medical Associates equates great change with great opportunity.
We have been active participants in reimbursement pilot programs, and have learned a great deal from these initiatives. We’ll continue to monitor and assess their plusses and minuses.


We have the ideal culture to help develop inventive, responsive programs. We’re dedicated providers who have the experience to implement change, and have the flexibility to take your organization in whichever direction is necessary.


As part of Envision Healthcare, we thrive on integrated systems (hospitals, community, municipalities, health plans, primary care, etc.). In fact, our model requires strong integration and collaboration. We can ramp up, scale down, change practices and redirect our efforts better than just about any other practice of medicine, and we use our own expertise to expand the experiences of each company within the family to strengthen us as an organization.


Whatever changes are in store, you won’t find a group of professionals better equipped to help you meet these challenges.
