The Dermatology Alliance was formed by independent Dermatology practices to provide leverage to other independent Dermatology practices while enabling members to maintain their autonomy and reduce escalating expenses. The Dermatology Alliance is an Independent Physician Association (IPA) that combines the buying power of a Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) with the negotiating power of a Managed Services Organization (MSO).  For additional information about the Dermatology Alliance visit www.dermatologyalliance.net
