PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Six longstanding Philadelphia independent physician associations (IPAs), today announced that they have joined forces to form Constitution Physician Alliance LLC (“CPA”), one of the largest IPAs in the greater Philadelphia area. CPA will provide locally coordinated care that is focused on improved patient experience, quality, and affordability.
CPA is led by Dr. Larry Doroshow, Board Chairman, and Dr. Timothy Fiorillo, Medical Director, and consists of more than 200 doctors, including both primary care doctors and specialists, from:
- Ben Franklin Physicians IPA, LLC
- Broad Spectrum IPA, LLC
- Delco Wellness Independent Physician Association
- Liberty Independent Physicians Group, LLC
- Prestige Physicians Group IPA, LLC
- Valley Forge IPA, LLC
This merger offers expanded capabilities through a broad group of doctors that provide coordinated care with a focus on disease prevention to deliver better health outcomes for patients while controlling costs.
“Patients, along with their families and caregivers, are managing increasingly complex medical conditions that require multiple doctors and nurses to work together to ensure their needs are addressed holistically,” said Dr. Fiorillo. “By bringing together these six organizations, patients in the Philadelphia area will have a comprehensive team that focuses on creating and evolving individualized care plans based on the latest information about each person. We are committed to improving the patient experience and outcomes by taking on the responsibility of care coordination - allowing patients to focus on their own health and not the stress of communicating between multiple doctors.”
CPA is doctor-owned and operated and brings together doctors who share the belief that coordinated care is the most beneficial way to treat patients. Coordinated care allows the primary care doctor to be in the know regarding all facets of their patient’s care, including their current health status, the specialists they see, and the medications they are taking. This coordinated approach ensures the most appropriate care is provided across the patient’s entire care team. Additional patient benefits of CPA include:
- Timely access to routine procedures with regularly available appointments.
- An amplified focus on the patient experience, including ways to provide feedback to the doctor.
- Quality of care standards that include regular screenings and disease prevention.
- Access to doctors who are committed to reducing hospital admissions and readmissions for their patients.
