The Hospital Purchasing and Materials Management Association (HPMMA) of Greater New York, Inc. have been in existence since the 1960’s. This organization has been closely aligned with the major hospitals in New York by engaging their Supply Chain departments and leadership by offering education and demonstrations of best demonstrated practices with the support of the national association, Association for Healthcare Resource Materials Management (AHRMM). In 1991 due to evolution of the organization and the elevation of the supply chain, the HPMMA changed its name to the Healthcare Materials Management Association (HMMA) and then to the Healthcare Resource and Materials Association (HCRMA) of Greater New York, Inc.
