ENGLEWOOD, CO: MGMA names CEO

InformationWeek, July 25, 2011
The Medical Group Management Association has selected a chief with as strong a background in health IT as practically any other leader of a healthcare organization not specifically dedicated to IT promotion. MGMA, an Englewood, CO-based organization comprised of group physician practice administrators and leaders, has named Susan L. Turney, MD, to succeed William F. Jessee, MD, as president and CEO. Jessee, himself a vocal advocate for IT adoption in healthcare, will retire after 12 years in charge. MGMA says its 22,500 members lead 13,600 healthcare organizations that provide more than 40% of the healthcare services delivered in the United States.
