About AAIHDS
Established in 1993, the American Association of Integrated Healthcare Delivery Systems (AAIHDS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the educational advancement of provider-based managed care professionals responsible for accountable and integrated healthcare delivery. Members include payer and provider-based managed care executives (i.e., VPs of Managed Care), CEOs and Board members of ACOs, IPAs, and PHOs, and other executives involved in integrated healthcare delivery.

The mission of AAIHDS is to provide managed healthcare professionals in ACO's,  IPAs, PHOs, health systems, hospitals and other integrated delivery systems with the tools, education, skills and resources to be successful in the marketplace.

About AAMCN

The American Association of Managed Care Nurses (AAMCN) was established in 1994 in response to an identified need to educate nurses about managed healthcare. The AAMCN is a non-profit membership association of Registered Nurses, Nurse Practitioners and Licensed Practical Nurses including top level administrators, managers, directors and consultants associated with a variety of managed healthcare organizations. The American Association of Managed Care Nurses has been approved as a provider of continuing education for nursing by the Virginia Nurses Association who is accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

About NAMCP
NAMCP was founded in 1991 to serve the educational interests and needs of physicians working in any form of managed healthcare. NAMCP is run by physicians for physicians. Since physicians affect 85% of the expense side in healthcare, NAMCP believes they should take a proactive role in developing the best delivery system for patients in managed healthcare, thereby increasing quality, reducing costs and improving practice performance and clinical outcomes. Members of NAMCP are medical directors and practicing physicians from purchasers (employers), health plans and provider systems. NAMCP is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing education to physicians.
