CHICAGO (June 16, 2020) – The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) and HealthEco, LLC, announced today a strategic partnership to create new business opportunities that will help healthcare systems diversify revenue streams and improve margins.
“We are excited to be a part of HFMA’s forward-looking vision to create positive, relevant change in the healthcare industry,” said HealthEco Managing Partner Jami Youmans. “We recognize that health systems are often challenged to maintain margins while also preparing for the future. Our partnership will help from the inside-out by bringing expert resources and providing educational platforms, along with commercial and tactical strength, directly to leaders from across the healthcare landscape.”
Chicago-based HealthEco partners with health systems to deliver growth so they can better focus on improving healthcare outcomes. HFMA holds a minority stake in HealthEco and HFMA President & CEO Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA, is a member of the board.

This new relationship will accelerate our members’ progress on all three fronts.”
