Established in August of 1980 with 25 members, the organization was originally named Delaware Valley Health Care Risk Management Association (DVHCRMA). Over the next five years, membership doubled and meetings went from quarterly round-table discussion sessions to monthly educational presentations.
In 1997, the organization changed its name to Philadelphia Area Society for Healthcare Risk Management. Our members benefit from a wide variety of educational presentations on topics related to all aspects of risk management, professional networking and job opportunities. Exchange of information and solution to mutual problems may be PASHRM’s most significant benefit—access to a wealth of knowledge from members who are leaders in the field of healthcare risk management.
