What is NPCN?

NPCN is an IPA compromised of 100 plus individual/group independent physicians who want to control their own destiny and collaborate with other physicians on a variety of projects to improve their strategic and financial position, while improving patient care.

 

What are the IPA’s goals for its physicians?


  • Clinical Integration

  • Operate a more cost efficient and effective practice

  • Entertain new reimbursement models and strategies

  • Efficiently navigate the changing marketplace

  • Have access to the best management organizations in Las Vegas

  • Partner with other physicians and physician groups on an Accountable Care Organization (ACO)

  • Remain viable and independent through collaboration and improved financial results


Why NPCN is a better IPA for physicians than all other previously created IPA’s in Las Vegas?


  • The environmental pressures on independent solo and group practices have never been greater, therefore requiring collaboration

    • Major corporate ownership of physicians which is increasing the level of competition

    • Narrowing of payor networks

    • Pressures on reimbursement and costs  

  • NPCN is fortunate to have an extremely strong partner like the Valley Health System

  • NPCN is physician and local management controlled. NPCN is for the strict benefit of its members, not a physician corporation or managed care organization.    

  • No other IPA has ever had such a strong locally based board and management team.
