First American & the HFMA

    Industry Collaboration

    Collaborating with associations on treatment advances and delivery models is important to understand our clients. First American supports hundreds of healthcare associations across the country to offer educational webinars, thought leadership content and exclusive funding products. We are especially proud of our 10-year relationship and involvement with the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA). 

    About the HFMA

    The HFMA equips its more than 56,000 members nationwide to navigate a complex healthcare landscape. HFMA is a not-for-profit, nonpartisan organization that advances healthcare by collaborating with other key stakeholders to address industry challenges and providing guidance, education, practical tools and solutions, and thought leadership.

    Peer Reviewed Designation

    HFMA's Peer Review process provides healthcare financial managers with an objective, third-party evaluation of business solutions used in the healthcare workplace. The rigorous, 11-step process includes a Peer Review panel composed of current customers, prospects who have not made a purchase and industry experts. 


    First American and the HFMA started their relationship over 10 years ago, after discovering the Peer Review designation highlights companies’ business solutions that display high value, high quality, and have earned their customer’s trust. Given our sole focus in healthcare, we found that our values matched what the HFMA was looking for and we continue to provide equipment financing and leasing solutions for hundreds of HFMA members.

    What This Means for You

    First American’s financing solutions have earned the designation “Peer Reviewed by HFMA.” That means we have been evaluated by your healthcare peers for quality, technical support, customer service and value—all things you look for as you make purchasing decisions. When the HFMA saves you time without skipping a step, why start anywhere else?

    Celebrating 10 Years

    Over the last 10 years, the HFMA has surveyed hundreds of First American’s clients and prospects, and we pass every review with increasing scores. We are grateful for our relationship with the HFMA and thankful one of the most respected healthcare associations in the nation helps out hospitals, health systems, and healthcare organizations by making their search for reliable, credible, and vetted business vendors easier.
