The Western Slope Medical Managers Association (WSMMA) is an independent organization managed by a member-elected Board of Directors. WSMMA is not affiliated with any healthcare systems or organizations.
The predecessor of the WSMMA was a loosely organized group of medical practice managers who met on a periodic basis to discuss operational concerns. In early 2016, a steering committee composed of several medical group managers held a series of meetings to determine whether or not there was sufficient interest to pursue a more formal organization.
There was, and the WSMMA came into being, incorporated, chose its first officers from the steering committee, and began meeting on a monthly basis. The steering committee became the charter Board of Directors and the WSMMA evolved into providing monthly meetings with an “open mike” forum, educational programs, and half-day educational seminars.
