Bend Memorial Clinic (BMC) announced the organization is joining the Central Oregon Independent Practice Association (COIPA).
This move represents the clinic’s commitment toward greater collaboration with Central Oregon physicians and working together to deliver quality healthcare in a cost effective manner.
“Healthcare in the United States has entered a new era. Creating systemic change in the way healthcare is delivered will require Physicians and groups to work together and be accountable for delivering quality outcomes to patients,” said Dr. Sean Rogers, BMC medical director. “There has never been a better time to be part of a collective group focused on improving the health of the population, enhancing the patient experience and controlling the escalating cost of health care.”
COIPA provides cost effective resources for medical practices through value added services such as credentialing, health plan contracting, practice management support, research and assistance with technology implementation and education.
“We are very pleased that BMC is joining COIPA,” said John Ryan, executive director, COIPA. “The more physician leaders collaborate to deliver excellent healthcare, the better it is for the health of our entire population. “
Central Oregon Independent Practice Association (COIPA) is comprised of nearly 700 physicians and practitioners within a 40,000 square mile, 12 county geographic area in Oregon. COIPA offers a collaborative, unique experience for providers to become involved in the medical decisions that affect their practices, while improving efficiency and reducing healthcare delivery system costs for its members and their patients.
