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. NPCN is fortunate to have the Valley Health System as our strategic partner hospital system.

 

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.
