HFMA has joined the Healthcare Administrative Simplification Coalition, which seeks to reduce the administrative costs and complexity of health care. The coalition was organized by the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Health Information Management Association and the Medical Group Management Association. Other members of the coalition include the nation's leading physician and hospital organizations, health and benefits plans, employers, government agencies and other groups sharing the coalition's goals. Positions taken by the coalition are determined by majority vote and do not necessarily represent the position of all of its members.
