TAMSS Mission and History
The Tennessee Association of Medical Staff Services (TAMSS) was established in 1988 by a group of medical staff professionals seeking to establish an organization which would provide opportunities for advancement of their high standards of education and coordination of information relative to their chosen careers.
We are an organization for healthcare professionals who work in healthcare facilities (hospitals, nursing homes, physician offices, health care management/insurance organizations) and work tirelessly to verify every aspect of physician and health care workers credentials. We make sure they are licensed, competent, trained and experienced to perform requested procedures and who meet specified criteria to participate on medical staffs, HMOs, and physician offices. We emphasize certification in our profession: CPCS and CPMSM.
The objective of TAMSS members is to unite persons who are engaged in support management and coordination of activities peraformed within various healthcare settings to meet copious quality improvement and regulatory requirements established to ensure optimal healthcare to our communities.
To continually strive to better serve our communities, through diligent pursuit of excellence in performance of our chosen careers.
To promote professional growth of members working in various healthcare settings through provision of quality education resources, opportunities for networking with professional peers, and development of relationships with other healthcare organizations and associations to educate them to this purpose.
