As president of IMS, I welcome you to membership into an organization representing you as physicians, your patients, and quality medical services since 1848. I encourage your participation in our IMS activities including meetings and written contributions to the Bulletin.

IMS can only be as energized as the members who comprise it, so reach out to your IMS colleagues and get to know them, as well as, our focus of collegiality and quality medical care.

When you aren’t a Member of the IMS (Indianapolis Medical Society) and ISMA (Indiana State Medical Association), exactly what are you missing?

Your Voice … IMS & ISMA represent your voice on medical issues that affect physicians, practices and patients.

Your Voice … IMS & ISMA are your advocates at the state legislature… where, without IMS/ISMA input, nearly all medical decisions made by your government are made by non-physicians!

Your Voice … IMS is your voice to patients, colleagues and the public via our exclusive 3-pronged referral system:

  1. IMS answers calls daily from the general public who are “looking for a doctor.”
  2. IMS has provided our physician eRoster (with photos) to your colleagues via DocBookMDtm giving you a HIPAA-compliant platform for messages; i.e., tests and x-ray results!
  3. The IMS website (imsonline.org) provides the general public, staffs, and fellow physicians with the most complete listing available for referrals and information (includes up to four office locations).

Your Voice … IMS provides the only inclusive collegial opportunity for you to share your thoughts and time with Physicians in the Greater Indianapolis area. We include all practices, all specialties, all hospitals, all ages and ethnic backgrounds.

Your Voice … for growth. IMS offers opportunities to lead, to grow and provide direction on issues of medical affairs, ethics and professional conduct.

Your Voice … for best business practices. The IMS offers discounts on EMRs/EHR (iSALUS), collection services (I.C. System), staffing (Favorite Healthcare Staffing), coding (Complete Medical Solutions), car rentals (Hertz) and many others.

Your Voice … to your colleagues’ through the pages of the IMS Bulletin. Let everyone know about your accomplishments.
