Physician-led integrated health systems

There are various factors to consider when deciding whether to join or align with a physician-led integrated health system and IPPS has developed A Guide to Joining or Aligning With a Physician-led Integrated Health System (sign in required) to assist you in your decision. 

Whether a resident, physician in independent practice or a mid-career physician, the guide provides detailed analysis on various issues, including:

  • Types of physician-led integrated health systems available
  • Assessing the performance of a physician-led integrated health system
  • Determining which physician-led integrated health system is the right fit
  • Aligning options for independent practices

Our mission

The mission of the Integrated Physician Practice Section is to advance, through policy and education, the interests of multispecialty, physician-led, integrated health care delivery, and groups actively working toward such systems of coordinated care.

The Governing Council recommends to the AMA Board of Trustees the appointments of representatives to medical education organizations, accrediting bodies and certification boards. Learn more about our governing council members who represent a broad spectrum of physician-led integrated systems and practice settings.
