Who We Are
The Emergency Department Practice Management Association (EDPMA) is one of the nation’s largest trade associations supporting the delivery of emergency medical care to all Americans. Together, EDPMA’s members deliver (or directly support) health care for over half of the 136.3 million patients who visit U.S. emergency departments each year. Our members include physician groups, billing and coding companies, and others who support health care provided in the Emergency Department and work collectively to deliver services often unmet elsewhere. We provide advocacy and educational resources to Emergency Department physician groups and their practice partners.
