We live where you live, every day

transforming noise to music

In 1996, PriMed Physicians was one year old and on the brink of bankruptcy. A year earlier, PriMed’s 17 founding physician partners believed they would do better to merge their small, “mom and pop” practices into a larger entity. The insurers were merging and the hospitals were merging. It felt dangerous to be in small practices.

There were literally dozens of similar examples in the Midwest – small, newly formed medical groups of about 20 physicians who banded together in the mid-1990s. Like PriMed, most of them failed.

MediSync’s founders offered to provide the management services necessary to bring PriMed to success. The relationship between PriMed and MediSync was formed at a time of crisis and has continued and strengthened over the past 21 years. Over time, four other Southwest Ohio groups made MediSync their management partner. Some of the groups were independent; others were hospital-owned.

Today, PriMed enjoys many accomplishments

  • In a market dominated by two large hospital systems, PriMed continues to thrive as an independent
  • PriMed is the largest physician-owned group in Southwest Ohio
  • The group's growth is constant
  • Over the past three years, PriMed has recognized $15 million in value revenues and a positive margin (that is, net of value expenses)
  • PriMed is #1 in the US in its hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and other chronic outcomes
  • PriMed physician compensation meets or exceeds the national and regional averages
  • PriMed Physicians have achieved all these accomplishments without accepting subsidies
