IPA was founded in 1999 to provide dedicated Hospitalist coverage across acute and sub-acute venues of care in North Texas. Since then, IPA has grown to nearly 70 affiliated providers practicing in multiple Texas communities including Dallas, Fort Worth, Southlake, Rockwall, Frisco, San Antonio and Austin. IPA utilizes state-of-the-art workflow automation, practice communication, and program management support systems to effectively and efficiently manage patients across the acute and sub-acute venues of care. IPA's clinical services are tailored to the individual needs of our partner hospitals. Also, IPA is an active participant in the CMS Bundled Payment Care Initiative. As a result, our incentives for quality and performance are clearly aligned with those of our hospital partners.
