What We Do

Professional Services
Improvement Path Systems (IPS) helps healthcare organizations do more with less. We are a professional services firm that is committed to improving how healthcare is delivered in the US. We believe our approach to consulting is what makes us unique and our projects successful. We place an equal emphasis on our three part winning formula: People + Data + Expertise = Results.


  • People: We hire the best and brightest that have a true passion for healthcare and change management.
  • Data: Our true differentiator; we let the data do the speaking for us. Analytical modeling, data mining, custom software, and information-rich applications is what makes a partnership with IPS a success story.
  • Expertise: Clinically or operationally, we have the experience in nearly ever facet of the healthcare delivery model.

Healthcare is transforming. In the next few years the traditional fee-for-service (FFS) model will convert to a quality or value-based model. This shift, most visible in the growing Accountable Care Organization movement, seeks a healthcare system that delivers improved care at the best cost. Meeting this challenge is of critical importance to the financial future of America as healthcare will soon account for 20 percent of all expenditures in the nation. IPS is committed to contributing to the solution by partnering with hospitals to provide clinical and operational performance improvement. Our customized solutions deliver measurable and sustainable results.
