CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - August 26, 2014) - HFMA president and CEO Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA, has been recognized by Modern Healthcare as one of the 100 most influential people in health care. This marks the first time that Fifer, who assumed his role at HFMA in June 2012, has been named to the list.

According to Modern Healthcare, nominations were narrowed to a final ballot of 300 candidates from among 15,000 submissions. Honorees were deemed to be the most influential individuals in the industry, in terms of leadership and impact, by the magazine's readers and an expert panel.
"I share this recognition with the HFMA Board and the entire team," said Fifer. "Over the past year, HFMA has launched several key initiatives that are making a difference in health care. I look forward to working with my finance colleagues and others across the industry as we continue to look for consensus-based solutions to industry challenges."

He also spent time with McLaren Health Care Corporation, Flint, Mich., as vice president of finance and Ingham Regional Medical Center, Lansing, Mich., as senior vice president of finance and CFO.
