Providence Medical Management Services
Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center
You take care of patients. We'll take care of business.
To be successful in the complex business of health care, physicians need more than clinical excellence. They need sound practice management as well as sophisticated computer systems and secure ways to connect to patients, hospitals and referral resources and colleagues.
Providence Medical Management Services (PMMS) takes comprehensive medical management to the next level by providing physicians quick and easy web-based business solutions that enable them to compete in this new era of medicine.
PMMS is a full-service Medical Services Organization (MSO) for medical groups, IPAs and other health care organizations. Our seasoned and physician-focused leadership has proven, hands-on managed care expertise. With real-time, computerized reporting, PMMS is centered on the support physicians and other health care organizations need to provide high-quality health care and succeed financially.
It’s important that physicians have access to records, reports and other essential data no matter where they practice. PMMS uses the speed and power of web communications, providing 24/7 access to our secure, password-protected site. The site provides a safe highway for the exchange of patient information, connecting primary care physicians, specialists, hospitals and ancillary services. The connection is seamless, creating the elements needed for accountable care. With one system, PMMS can help ensure effective participation in the future of healthcare delivery, saving lives, time and money.

PMMS is part of the Providence Medical Institute (PMI), a non-profit medical foundation which provides administrative and support services to individual physicians, physician groups and independent physician associations (IPA). These services include office space leasing; billing and collections; resource and employee management; medical and office equipment; information systems; accounting; marketing; and health plan contracting support.
PMI also provides physicians a framework for clinical integration to help improve quality, efficiency, and coordination of care to benefit patients, providers and purchasers.
Additional options are available through PMI for physicians, including office building development; joint ventures; co-management agreements for clinical services; IT/EMR connectivity; and physician recruitment assistance to fulfill community need.
