This is accomplished by promoting and delivering the physician/administrative team approach to health care and medical group management. The MMGMA also focuses on enhancing a member's professional role, knowledge and skills.
The MMGMA serves its membership by advocating with the legislative and regulatory bodies to advance the concept of group practice with the health delivery system as well as building and providing a repository of data, process and organization design tools.
