Spacecoast IPA/Network Development
Recognizing the absence of a regional physician network, physicians in OMNI Healthcare have formed the Spacecoast Independent Practice Association (IPA), a nonprofit IPA. Currently, the Spacecoast IPA has a complete physician network in central and south Brevard County including representation by more than 150 physicians in primary care, medical, and the surgical subspecialties. The network formed by the Spacecoast IPA has been utilized as part of OMNI Healthcare's contract with Florida Tech to provide healthcare services to more than 5,000 students and employees of Florida Tech. This contract has allowed OMNI Healthcare to provide on-site primary care services in addition to referral services for the employees and students at Florida Tech. Currently, the Spacecoast IPA holds insurance contracts with more than twenty managed care organizations. The physician network of the Spacecoast IPA is currently being expanded to include physicians within central and north Brevard County, Indian River County, and Volusia County.
The Spacecoast IPA's success in developing cooperative relationships with other IPA's allows it to provide the most comprehensive physician network in east central Florida. In an effort to create a network of physicians and other healthcare providers to provide employers and employees with rapid access to medical treatment and standardized reporting to employers, Spacecoast IPA developed a network of primary care physicians certified in the state of Florida to provide acute and follow-up care to employees and employers who suffer work-related injuries. This is a significant component of the Spacecoast IPA's commitment to meeting the needs of large employers in Brevard County. Ancillary services which are required for this program are provided by OMNI Healthcare, as well as pre-employment drug screening, pre-employment physicals, routine and random drug testing. The relationships which develop as a result of this program highlight OMNI Healthcare's commitment to meeting the needs of large and medium-sized employers.
