2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

IPC The Hospitalist Co Inc a Delaware corporation was incorporated in January 1998. The Company is a provider of hospitalist services in the United States. The Company's affiliated hospitalists, physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants provide hospitalist solutions at hospitals and other inpatient facilities. As of December 31, 2013, its over 1,760 affiliated hospitalists, including physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants (collectively 'affiliated hospitalists') provides hospitalist solutions at over 410 hospitals and 1,100 other inpatient and post-acute care facilities primarily in 26 states. Collectively, its affiliated hospitalists work with more than 39,000 referring physicians and 3,600 health plans. The Company has increased its practice groups to 295 since the beginning of its operation. It successfully integrated these acquisitions into the Company and onto its proprietary technology based practice management system known as IPC-Link. The company, through its affiliated hospitalists, provides, manages and coordinates the care of hospitalized patients and serves as the inpatient partner of primary care physicians and specialists, allowing them to focus their time and resources on their office based practices or their specialties. It also provides its affiliated hospitalists with the infrastructure, information management systems, specialized training programs and administrative support necessary to perform these services. The Company's hospitalist programs are structured to provide acute care hospitals with a consistent on-site physician presence that typically results in fewer admitting physicians overseeing patients in the hospital, thereby reducing process variability and enhancing the ability to implement standardized practices. It provides its affiliated hospitalists with access to IPC-Link through its web-based 'Virtual Office' portal to support their clinical, administrative and communications needs. IPC-Link is distinctive in its ability to capture the results of each doctor-patient encounter and organize these results into a searchable database. IPC-Link enables its affiliated hospitalists to view and record important patient data, and allows hospitalists in a practice group to share patient information as needed. The Company uses IPC-Link to create customized surveys for patients who are discharged to home from an inpatient facility. To assist in monitoring and documenting the patient's discharge or transition to outpatient care. IPC-Link provides its call center with patient information and follow-up instructions. The Company's operations and relationships with healthcare providers such as hospitals, other healthcare facilities, and healthcare professionals are subject to extensive and increasing regulation by numerous federal, state, and local government entities.
