 About HVPA...


Huron Valley Physicians Association (HVPA) was incorporated in 1983 as an Independent Physician Association (IPA). HVPA has approximately 450 physician members located in Washtenaw, Livingston, Lenawee, and Western Wayne counties. Approximately 15% of our members are primary care physicians and 85% are specialists. All of our physicians have admitting privileges at Saint Joseph Mercy Health System (SJMHS), a member of the Trinity Health System with locations in Ann Arbor, Brighton, Chelsea, Livingston County and Saline.

HVPA has united independently-owned practices into a single organization to pursue population health management. Primary and specialty care physicians are represented on various committees to work on utilization and quality improvement initiatives. As an IPA, HVPA has the ability to sign network-based contracts to present a full range of specialties that deliver care in a coordinated effort. Network contracts also create administrative efficiencies that save time and reduce costs for the local healthcare market.

HVPA took the lead in the introduction of IT tools such as a physician-patient portal for doctor-patient communication and physician-to-physician referrals, created its own chronic disease registry, Health Focus, and enterprise data warehouse, e-Prescribing, and EMRs. HVPA also supports practices in patient satisfaction surveys.

By Healthcare Effectiveness and Data Information Set (HEDIS) measures, HVPA has scored among the highest performing physician groups in the nation and our growth in pharmacy expenditures has been at or below the national average.



To organize and promote the interests of independent physician practices in their commitment to collaborate with other physicians, health systems and payers to improve the quality and experience of care of their patients, to improve the health of the population they serve, and to decrease the cost of care.



HVPA and its physician partners will be recognized for:

  • providing high quality, coordinated, integrated care
  • deploying connectivity and data analytic tools in support of population health management
  • achieving benchmark performance metrics by developing data-driven best practices
  • creating a supportive community for physicians with a common goal
  • nurturing relationships with patients, other physicians, health systems, and payers
