Welcome to the CMGMA website!

Welcome to the official website of the Chattanooga Medical Group Management Association (CMGMA). We are the regionally chartered affiliate of the Tennessee Medical Group Management Association (TMGMA) for the Chattanooga, TN area.

Our meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month from 11:30 am-1:00 pm. The meetings include lunch and are held on the main campus of Parkridge Medical Center in the first floor conference room of the Diagnostic Center Building.

Most meetings include a presentation on a pertinent healthcare management related topic delivered by experts in the field. Our presentation topics for 2016 include:
      •Legislative Update
      •New Payment Models
      •The Fantastic Five: Five Steps to Increase Your Influence
      •Risky Business: Expert Panel Discussion
      •Keeping an Eye on Your Expenses

In addition to presentations, we have quarterly Managers Roundtable discussions. These open forum meetings allow managers to discuss, vent and resolve practice issues together. The last few years have proven to be the most difficult time in healthcare with the combined effects of declining reimbursement, rising expenses, and increasing administrative burdens.

CMGMA is a great way to network and stay connected with healthcare management professionals that are struggling with the same issues we all are. Stay informed and stay connected with CMGMA.
