WHY IMS?


Our physicians strive for the highest quality care for every patient by utilizing the extensive knowledge provided within the group. As health care continues to evolve, IMS is committed to finding new and better ways to provide exceptional personalized care. With our combined clinical expertise and use of advanced technology, IMS physicians are uniquely positioned to meet your current and future quality expectations.

IMS IS PHYSICIAN-LED AND PATIENT-CENTERED


Integrated Medical Services (IMS) started in 2006, when several community physicians determined that they could provide better patient care and gain efficiency by practicing together rather than separately. From there, our group has grown to approximately 140 providers and 65 locations.

IMS is a physician-led organization united through its providers’ commitment to high-quality, innovative health care. The multi-specialty group has primary care and most specialties well represented throughout the Phoenix metropolitan area and many rural locations.

IMS HAS PERSONALIZED PATIENT TREATMENT PLANS


Compassionate physicians are able to provide what is best for a personalized patient treatment plan through a patient-centric care model. Assisted by our friendly and well-trained staff, our providers are committed to building ongoing relationships with patients and constantly strive to make the patient care experience straightforward and pleasant.

IMS IS A MEDICAL HOME


IMS uses evidence-based, patient-centered processes that emphasize care coordination and communication. We call this model of care a “medical home”.

Research shows that this model can lead to higher quality care and lower costs, and improve patients’ and providers’ reported experiences of care. We promote partnerships between individual patients and their personal clinicians, instead of treating patient care as the sum of several episodic office visits. Each patient’s care is tended to by clinician-led care teams, who provide for all the patient’s health care needs and coordinate treatments across the health care system. Our clinicians demonstrate the benchmarks of patient-centered care, including open scheduling, expanded hours and appropriate use of proven health information systems.

IMS INCORPORATES CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY INTO ITS HEALTH PROCESSES


Our physicians keep abreast of the latest techniques, such as innovations in non-invasive surgery, and our offices utilize digital X-rays and leading-edge equipment.

Our secure state-of-the-art health records system also facilitates billing and sharing of information for better patient care. Providers treating the same patient all refer to the same Electronic Health Record (EHR), allowing each physician to access complete and current health information and to coordinate care effectively across the network.

IMS IS PART OF THE TEAM


IMS providers proudly serve as team physicians for the Cleveland Indians, Cincinnati Reds, and LA Dodgers Spring Training Teams, and our organization is the title sponsor of the IMS Arizona Marathon.
