As part of our ongoing efforts in Washington, DC, we routinely meet with the following groups to discuss and unite for our common interests:

National Rural Health Association (NRHA) – is a trade association of small hospitals who have problems with accessibility that many of our IAMERS members face.  The NRHA is a national membership organization with more than 20,000 members whose mission is to provide leadership on rural issues through advocacy, communications, education and research.

Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) – is the premier membership association for professional administrators and leaders of medical group practices. Their mission is to continually improve the performance of medical group practice professionals and the organizations they represent.

Association for Quality Imaging (AQI) – represents independent diagnostic testing facilities, freestanding radiology practice- based imaging centers, and providers of imaging services in mobile settings throughout the United States. Medical imaging equipment and supply vendors support AQI as well. AQI advocates on behalf of experts who provide lower-cost and higher-quality outpatient diagnostic imaging services and patients who benefit from these life-saving medical imaging technologies.
