Who We Are

InterHospital Physicians Association, DBA:  Portland IPA, is a for-profit corporation incorporated in the State of Oregon.  Since its inception in 1983, Portland IPA has become one of the largest and oldest independent practice associations in the United States and represents almost 3,000 primary care and specialty care physicians in the Portland Metropolitan area.

A Board of Directors consisting of primary care and specialty care board certified physicians leads the organization that was originally created to give physicians a voice in contracting.  Over the years, services have expanded to include group contracting with several health plans, credentialing, quality improvement initiatives, project grants, EHR adoption, and programs to assist our physicians and their staff with navigating health care reform.

As the health care climate changes, Portland IPA continues to develop timely initiatives to support our physicians in maintaining successful independent practices.
