Increasing surgical efficiency and profitability while lowering patient costs and supporting value-based care delivery
IPG enables surgeon collaboration and engagement with our health plan partners to reduce costs for their patients while supporting value-based care delivery. Below are solutions and results for our surgeon's key challenges.
Receiving improved professional reimbursement when more cost effective surgical care is delivered.
IPG partners with commercial health plans to ensure the right surgical group incentives are in place to drive improved surgical cost efficiency through site of care optimization, reduced device costs and optimal device selection.
Improved reimbursement due to more efficient surgical care delivery.
Coverage of new procedures and technology.
IPG works with the health plan to establish coverage and provides access to new, more cost effective, high quality devices.
Faster benefit coverage of new technology.
Finding appropriate amounts of Operating Room time to support practice expansion.
IPG works on introducing physicians to facilities with the appropriate infrastructure and capacity to allow surgeon partners to do more cases at the more cost-effective facility.
Increased practice profitability in a more efficient and cost-effective setting that will directly benefit the surgeon and their patients.
Limitation of surgeon opportunities and efficiencies.
IPG mitigation of the risk of coverage and reimbursement of the device and management of a complex process allows the surgeon to focus on productive care delivery.
Increase in procedures performed due to better scheduling efficiencies and lower operating room turnover time.
Patient complaints about increasing financial responsibility for the procedure.
Partnering with IPG allows the surgeon to perform the procedure with the optimal device in a lower cost setting that meets the clinical and financial needs of their patients.
Higher patient satisfaction and lower out of pocket costs.
"IPG has enabled the physicians who practice at CSSC to bring many more cases to CSSC. As a result, CSSC’s case volume for spine procedures, rotator cuff repairs, uni and total knees and other cases with high implant costs have increased since we began working with IPG. As a result, our patients have saved money vs. the hospitals, our physicians have saved time, and we expect that the insurance companies are also saving money compared to surgeries that are performed at the hospitals.”
