Physician Medical Groups
Marketplace Benefits for Physician Medical Groups (PMG)
Physician medical groups include ACO’s (Accountable Care Organizations), IPA’s (Independent Practice Associations), Healthcare MSO’s (Managed Services Organization), Health Plan HMO (Health Maintenance Organization), Fee For Services Networks (Non-PPO), and Fee For Services Plans with a PPO (Preferred Provider Organization).
Physician medical groups often negotiate favorable terms with several diagnostic test vendors – but they have no clear nor timely visibility to how these services are utilized. HIPAA compliant and secure messaging is another area of opportunity. It is unlikely that the doctors are all using the same EMR system so there is likely no integrated secure messaging capability. Referrals are also important within the PMG to the benefit of overall membership – sometimes depending on the group structure this is mandatory. The marketplace has all of this capability built-in and available.
