President's Welcome

 

Hello and thanks for dropping by Minnesota’s Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) website. I’m Monroe and I’m honored to serve as this year’s President of the Minnesota chapter. Outside of HFMA I’m a Senior Tax Manager with KPMG. I’ve been a member of HFMA for nearly a decade.

HFMA helps its members—both individuals and organizations—achieve optimal performance by providing the practical tools and solutions, education, industry analyses, and strategic guidance needed to address the many challenges that exist within the US healthcare system. The Minnesota Chapter is part of a broader national community, 87,000 members strong. Our members are healthcare finance leaders and professionals from hospitals and health systems, provider organizations, physician practices, business partners and payer markets

Our vision and mission is to bring value to the industry as the leading organization for healthcare finance. Our goal is to advance the profession and industry by:  

  • Providing relevant education and professional development opportunities.
  • Building and supporting coalitions with other healthcare associations to achieve consensus on solutions for the challenges facing the U.S. healthcare industry, as well as ensure accurate representation of the healthcare finance profession.
  • Educating a broad spectrum of key industry decision makers on the intricacies and realities of maintaining fiscally healthy healthcare organizations.
  • Working with a broad cross-section of stakeholders to improve the healthcare delivery system by identifying and bridging gaps in knowledge, best practices, and standards.

There’s a lot of exciting things happening in Minnesota this year. From June 1, 2022 to May 30, 2023 our local events include Region 8’s Mid-America Summer Institute (MASI) (August, 2022), our Regulatory Conference (November, 2022), the Women’s Conference and a Winter Institute (winter, 2023), and many more networking events and conferences throughout the year. Do not hesitate to contact me or check-out our events page for more information. 

Whether you’re interested in networking, continuing education, getting more involved, or someday leading this chapter yourself, our team of Officer’s, Committee Chairs, and Board of Directors are focused on bringing you value. The pace of change only continues to accelerate. We’re excited to move toward more in-person engagement at this year’s events and we look forward to seeing you there!
