Our new logo

“Our new look represents both our strategic foundation and a new and exciting future,” said Lafe Jones, president of the MGMA-Louisiana Board of Directors.

“For many years, we have been a proud state affiliate of Medical Group Management Association (MGMA).  We have co-branded with MGMA to ensure that our national, state and local organizations together represent a brand that is not only relevant, but stands out from all others in meeting the needs of practice professionals. A new logo is just one part of this process,” Jones said.

We are excited to be building on our heritage as a premier medical association by   “Advancing Leaders. Advancing Practices™”

The new MGMA is focused on creating strong, dynamic, successful practices that meet the needs of today's patients. This includes arming members with the tools needed to drive excellence in their practices, driving dialogue within the practice management community to address the most pressing issues facing the success of medical group practices and fostering partnerships between practice management professionals and their physicians that result in the best possible patient care.

Professional development is also a key brand value. ACMPE certification and Fellowship programs will continue to advance the profession, increase its recognition and develop qualified, effective leaders who help their practices succeed. Be sure to visit our ACMPE page.  

As all 50 states are transitioning to the new look in 2014, our unified brand is stronger, demonstrating that together we represent 33,000 medical practice administrators and executives in practices of all sizes, types, structures and specialties. Together, the state and national MGMA organizations are committed to providing you a powerful, unified voice for your profession; the resources to ensure practice success, efficiency and high quality patient care; and proactive leadership, advocacy, recognition and credibility for the profession.
