IHA Partners with Zipnosis to Launch a New Game-Changing Virtual Care Service

IHA Partners with Zipnosis to Launch a New Game-Changing Virtual Care Service
Safe, Fast and Affordable Online Diagnosis Coming to Michigan

10/5/2015 – IHA, one of Michigan’s most recognized multi-specialty physician groups, will soon launch a profoundly simple online diagnosis and treatment service for people with straightforward health problems in the Michigan area. This service will connect patients to IHA clinicians online to receive prompt, high-quality virtual care for common medical conditions, such as sinus infections, female bladder infections, pink eye, colds and flu—all for a flat fee payable online.

“Through our partnership with Zipnosis, we are excited to give more patients what they want—fast, affordable access to mainstream medicine in minutes,” said Jason Harris, IHA’s Vice President for Planning and Development. “Starting in early 2016, the Zipnosis platform will allow us to make high quality care from our own clinicians available to patients where and when they want to receive it, at an affordable price.”

“This is an exciting collaboration for Zipnosis,” says Jon Pearce, CEO and co-founder of Zipnosis. “Zipnosis is grateful to have the opportunity to support IHA’s in delivering convenient, affordable healthcare in Michigan. By using our advanced virtual care platform, IHA’s clinicians will be more efficient in providing care while simultaneously delighting patients with the most accessible healthcare in the country.”

Designed on the premise of quality care above all else, Zipnosis is continuing to improve patient care one click at a time – beating urgent care compliance to CDC’s clinical guidelines for many of the conditions it treats. In fact, adherence to evidence-based guidelines via the Zipnosis platform is 98.4 percent for sinusitis and nearly 100 percent for UTI, while the average for urgent care centers is 70 percent.

ABOUT IHA
IHA is one of the best and largest multi-specialty groups in Michigan. IHA employs more than 1,600 staff members, which includes 450 providers consisting of: physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and midwives across nearly 60 practices in southeast Michigan.

ABOUT ZIPNOSIS
Founded in 2008, privately-held Zipnosis is the first virtual care solution to empower health care systems with the technology and methodology to launch their own virtual care service line in a profoundly fast and simple way.

Thank you from IHA

Dear Patients:

IHA recently registered a significant milestone in the history of our physician group practice. We reached our 10 millionth patient visit since our founding on February 1, 1994.

What a legacy of service to our community! And, what a commitment by the people in the communities we serve to support IHA. It goes hand in hand. The more we give (access – quality – patient satisfaction – value), it seems the more we get back. We get the message! You can expect that we will continue to look for ways to grow and expand to meet your needs.

Ten million is an impressive number and accomplishment. We pledge to continue our commitment to providing each and every IHA patient with outstanding care, because we understand that patients have many options for their health care needs. We greatly value the lasting relationships that we have developed and are humbled by the trust you have placed in each and every member of the IHA team for your health care.

We have shaped IHA to become one of the best groups in America and have done so along the way with your support.

Many thanks,

 

  Bill Fileti
  President & CEO
