The Emergency Department Practice Management Association (EDPMA) is the nation’s only professional physician trade association focused on the delivery of high-quality, cost-effective care in the emergency department. EDPMA’s membership includes emergency medicine physician groups of all sizes and ownership models, as well as billing, coding, and other professional support organizations that assist healthcare providers in our nation’s emergency departments. And an important tenet of EDPMA’s governance structure that every Board member receives one vote, irrespective of the size or member category of the organization they represent.

Together, EDPMA members see or support 60% of all annual emergency department (ED) visits in the country and provide direct patient care to 40% of all ED visits.

From advocacy to education, EDPMA provides unmatched access to decision makers, monitors federal and state activity, educates on best practices, and keeps you up-to-date on the key issues and services affecting your business and your bottom line.



The mission of the Emergency Department Practice Management Association is to advocate for Emergency Department physician groups and their business partners to enhance quality patient care through operational excellence and financial stability.

Successful Advocacy – EDPMA is your voice before Congress, CMS, State-level decision makers, and private payers on Medicare and Medicaid Reimbursement, Quality Reporting, Documentation Requirements, Provider Enrollment, and more.

Keeping You Informed – With Federal and State Governments busily implementing the Affordable Care Act and the private sector finding creative ways to take the lead, EDPMA keeps you up-to-date with newsletters, interactive monthly committee meetings, regular email alerts, social media posts, and website updates.

Cutting-Edge Educational Opportunities – With Emergency Medicine’s premier annual conference the Solutions Summit, regularly updated Toolkits, Webinars, and Workshops.

Unique Opportunities to Network and Become an Industry Leader – EDPMA members regularly work together at committee meetings and on conference calls, on State-level task forces, and when working with our many coalition partners. Industry leaders work alongside newcomers, new leaders shine, and everyone’s contribution is greatly appreciated. We are the association representing and bringing together physician groups, billing and coding companies, and others supporting Emergency Medicine.
